Scratch is a programming language and online community where you can create your own interactive stories, games, and animation -- and share your creations with others around the world. In the process of designing and programming Scratch projects, young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively. Scratch is a project of the Lifelong Kindergarten group at the MIT Media Lab. It is available for free at http://scratch.mit.edu.

RYTT, Inc., tinkered with a Raspberry Pi a few years agon and was hooked!
The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card-sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It is a capable little computer which can be used in electronics projects, and for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word processing, browsing the internet, and playing games. It also plays high-definition video. We want to see it being used by adults and children all over the world to learn programming and digital making. You can read more about the Raspberry Pi here.
RYTT, Inc., have coached and mentored First Lego League Junior and First Lego League teams in the past four years. We believe in what First Lego League has to offer and encourage youth to work together and have fun. It's not just about Legos (although, building is great fun), participants learn robotics, programming, research and good ol' fashion teamwork!
RYTT, Inc., mentees have introduced us to Stop Motion Animation!
Watching them create their own animation got us all excited, we decided to explore it more and offer it other youth! Stay tuned!
