Join MIT Museum, a member of the Playful Invention and Exploration Network (, in using new digital media to explore a different theme each week. Make anything from "dueling banjo" bots to squirting elephants to a venus fly trap. Use the range of inventive objects at the MIT Museum as inspiration for the creation of structures that respond to their environment. Use a newly-released graphics-based version of the Logo programming language, in development at the Media Lab, to program your creations. Weekly themes will be posted on the website listed below.
