That's such a vague question. There are many different types of educational games.

If you want to, go into the Forge, to the games section, and search "Demo-" to find my tutorials. There are so many that you'll likely find something to work from.
Don't look to me but rather to the One who is the reason for what I do. :)

If you need help, send me a PM. Even if I haven't been on in the forums in ages, I still receive those messages via email notifications. You can also reply to any of my forum posts, regardless of the age (especially if I created it), and I will likely reply.

If you want to see the programming behind certain types of games, feel free to check out my "Demo-" games on StencylForge (http://community.stencyl.com/index.php/topic,16160.0.html)

Education games come in a large variety of subjects, genres, and target audiences.  What kind of game are you looking to make, exactly?  We'll be happy to get you pointed in the right direction and answer any questions you might have.
PM me if you require help.  I'm always glad to help out!

Thanks for your response to my question, guys! I'm really interested in making educational games like the hit games - Math Bingo (http://www.abcya.com/math_bingo.htm) and Alphabet Bingo (http://www.abcya.com/kindergarten_alphabet_bingo.htm), but just don't know where should I go from in Stencyl and which behavior(s) I should start with.

Other good examples I would like to follow are:

http://activeden.net/item/create-word-box2d-game/full_screen_preview/4692350

Hope this time I'm more specific than before. Any suggestions or directions will be highly appreciated.

The Bingos are just games with lots of buttons, with a draw text code for the top, and then conditionals to handle everything. To make a basic one isn't so bad; to make a more robust system is more challenging, but still doable if you have knowledge of working with lists.

If you want me to show you how to develop a system, here's my "for hire" post: http://community.stencyl.com/index.php/topic,18116.0.html
