I want to teach game development to kids as part of a course (year-long) involving Ruby. Unfortunately it looks like the game development kits available in Ruby (even in the form of bindings) are pretty limited.

Is the best solution to go with JRuby and use jMonkeyEngine through the JVM? I'd love to have the kids play with creating very basic 3d games. Is there another better solution for Ruby or on the JVM through JRuby?

Average age of kids is probably 9 to 12, with some as young as 5 and as old as 18.
