Please do! Because I'm at the moment playing around with the idea to
go teach high school children over weekends how to program in
Python(They do not have computer science at their school).

I was thinking about starting with http://gvr.sourceforge.net/ and
then http://pythonturtle.com/ and finally some Python.

So your insight will be helpful,
