Game Creators and Cartoon Network: More games to create, play, and share online -Star Wars Clone Wars, Ben 10, Batman the Brave and the Bold, and More!

Summer will be here before we know it, and there will be school kids with lots of time on their hands.  I'm sure kids (and parents) will be happy to learn that the The Cartoon Network has beefed up its Game Creator Central website and has expended the number of games available that allow users to build and play their own games. This should keep would-be game developers busy on rainy summer days.

Although some teachers might frown upon cartoon-related content, the creating games is a learning process and can help young people become more interested in "STEM"-related studies and careers.  (STEM = Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math)
