In the context of an Olympics event, this CD teaches the fundamentals of typing via 30 excellent arcade-style lessons. The goal is to earn power cards to unlock the trophy room where the team coach has been imprisoned! Cards are earned by fast and accurate typing. In the "extreme keyboarding" competition, kids type to compete for top scores in such events as foos ball, wall-climbing, snowboarding and skateboarding. The program carefully tracks kids' accuracy and speed, and the activities offer a nice mix of fun and well thought-out instruction. Both home and school testers enjoyed the program and felt that it really did help improve typing skills.
