CrispyScience is announcing its initiative to develop educational computer interacting toys using MakeyMakey and Scratch. It will show case its first prototype design of an interactive game that demonstrates the Mendelian inheritance principles . The design and software will both be shared under the creative commons licence to the public. The end of webinar will have a brief  demonstration of how hardware and software design could be developed and shared by educators with NO programing background. MakeyMakey and Scratch are an open hardware and software combination of platforms that both started at MIT and made innovational and computational thinking accesable to kids all around the globe.
