Vlamis presenting Phun to local computer club

I help out with a computer club here in the Kansas City area that meets monthly, sharing computer concepts such as programming, HTML, how the internet works, etc. with kids in grades 6 through 9.  We're trying to attract more kids.

This month, I'm showing kids how they can use a software program called Phun, a free game-like 2D physics sandbox where you can simulate virtual worlds.  Once you’ve gotten the hang of it, you can create all sorts of machines, games, comics, art, etc.  After a brief demonstration, everybody attending will create a “pumpkin chucker” to virtually launch a pumpkin.  Launch it hard enough and the pumpkin splats!

That's how we're advertising this to the community.  Sound like fun?  If you can't join us on February 14 here in the Kansas City area, download the software yourself--it's easy to install--just unzip to a directory and click phun.exe.  It's a lot of fun.  Check out the videos on the same web site for a sense of what you can do with the software.  Enjoy!
