With even the Government admitting parts of the school ICT curriculum are failing to stretch pupils far enough, there's never been a greater need for parents to give their children a helping hand. That's why we've teamed up with teachers and IT education experts to create a series of fun but challenging computing tasks for school children.

Our tailor-made tutorials are designed to stretch your children's IT talents and teach them skills they won't necessarily learn at school - and maybe even teach parents a thing or two. In the second of these tutorials, we explain how a 7-11 year old can create a great game from scratch.
