A project that I had to work on today for school was to create an animation in Scratch–which is an object-oriented programming tool designed by MIT students in collaboration with UCLA.  It’s geared toward ages 8+ to teach basic programming principles and logical thinking.  It’s very easy to downloand and install and use.  Best of all, it’s a lot of fun.  If you want, you can see my humble contribution here.  Let me know what you think by leaving me a comment.
