PicoCricket grows out of this same research tradition,
but with greater emphasis on artistic expression. Cricket activities
have been developed and refined as part of the Beyond
Black Boxes project and the PIE
Network, funded by the National Science Foundation. PICO
reengineered and extended Cricket technologies and activities
to create the PicoCricket Kit.
The PicoCricket is a new breed of invention kit that integrates art and technology to spark creative thinking in girls and boys 8 years and older. To see how children (and adults) are using the PicoCricket, visit our Community page.
Also based on research from the MIT Media Lab, our newest product, the PicoBoard, is a sensor board that works with MITís Scratch programming language. With the PicoBoard, you can connect real-world sensors to your on-screen Scratch projects.
