It's open source, and originally started in Europe, so the USA copyright
probably doesn't apply. But I'm no lawyer.

As for the FPC/Lazarus course. You might find this link interesting.


It was started by Peter Hinrichsen - a very talented Delphi developer.
It contains courseware for kids to get into programming. It starts by
using some visual programming tool (written in Perl or Ruby I think).
Then once they grasp the concept of programming, he moves them on
towards Pascal (using FPC and Lazarus). To make things interesting they
also use Lego Mindstorm to capture the imagination of the kids, and
enhance there problem solving skills.

All the courseware is freely available on the website as far as I know.
They also have a monthly newsletter you can subscribe to, to get the
latest news and info.
