Hello, my name is Robert Stryde and I am a teacher at the Royal School
for the Deaf Derby in the United Kingdom. In our mission to excel
learning for these underprivileged students we have discovered the
advantages of introducing computer programming into their lives.
Computer programming opens a new pathway of communication between each
individual student and their teachers, allowing classes to be more
productive and more importantly fun. Recently the school has invested
in Mathematica applications throughout the school and the positive
response has been incredible.

One of my on going goals is to introduce fun and diverse aspects to my
teachings and currently I would like to show my classes that games can
be created and played using Mathematica. Unfortunately most of the
teachers here, like their students, have only just learned how to use
Mathematica. Hence the reason I am writing this e-mail. I have
stumbled on your site and am wondering if you could lend a helping
hand. I am looking to get my hands on 4-5 ready made Mathematica
programmed games. Nothing too complicated of course, so that I too
could learn by example, but interesting enough to show the depth of

If you can help it would be greatly appreciated. Even if it is just to
point me in the right direction on where to seek help. Thank you so
much for your time, and please e-mail me directly.

Awaiting your response,

Robert Stryde
