One of the goals of OneTech Tip is to provide useful information and cool tech tips for non tech savy users.

Or if you are a tech savy user have you ever wish you could teach someone a peer, or a younger sibling how to program or introduce them to various programming concepts?
MIT has created a programming language that is user friendly, Scratch.
|Scratch is a programming language that makes it easy to create your own interactive stories, animations, games, music, and art -- and share your creations on the web.T The language was mainly developed to encourage young kids and students to feel comfortable with programming through a drag and drop interface. Do not take this lightly, if you have never done any programming before you should try it out. Since the interface is mainly drag and drop you see the basic structure of how to write a program. On the official site there are highlights of some user generated projects. Here's a OneTechTip Challenge Create a game using the scratch programming language and we will highlight it here.
