Hi my name is Michael Tomaino and I work on a project called Platinum Arts
Sandbox which makes it easy for kids and adults to create their own 3D
worlds, games, levels, quests, etc. The software is free and open source
and currently being used in many schools throughout the world. I have used
it personally to teach in various schools and I've seen work from kids as
young as six. I do have some of the kids work from a summer camp I taught
if you'd be interested in seeing it. Here is a review of the software:
We will also be appearing in the Total PC Gaming magazine out in February.

afterschool program at an elementary school. That is one of the reasons it

If I could get this to kids all over the world it would be a dream come
true! I'm really interested in getting Sandbox into as many linux distros
as possible. As a note we are preparing a "debian free" and "non free"
package to be included into Edubuntu. Please let me know what you think and
I'm very willing to work with you however I can to make this a reality.
