Tim tinkers with Scratch and ScratchJr at the MIT Media Lab's Lifelong Kindergarten group. For his recent thesis project, he extended ScratchJr to add support for programming with wireless physical devices, including toys, motors, lights, and sensors. He continues to explore how new technologies might be used for fun and creativity.
