A new app programming language has today hit Kickstarter that has been designed specifically for kids. Designed by the MiT Media Lab, the the idea is to make app programming more fun for children by incorporating the design into an iPad or iPhone.
Called Tickle, it allows users to create applications and games by simply dragging and dropping actions and commands into a working area.
“A new way to learn to code from scratch. Tickle brings the world’s most popular visual programming language, Scratch, to the iPad, and adds powerful capabilities.”
“With Tickle, anyone can learn to create amazing games and interactive stories on iPad, and program real-world objects. Your support will help make Tickle freely accessible to everyone, and broaden programming education.”
“Learning has never been this much fun. Develop logical thinking, problem solving skills, and creativity while learning to create games like Angry Birds and Flappy Bird. WARNING: learning programming may be addictive!”
In order to launch the project is looking to raise $30,000 from pledges, after which it will be available for free to all.
