Etoys – a media-rich model, simulation construction kit and authoring tool.

Squeak Etoys was inspired by LOGO, PARC-Smalltalk, Hypercard, and starLOGO. It is a media-rich authoring environment with a simple powerful scripted object model for many kinds of objects created by end-users that runs on many platforms, and is free and open source. It includes 2D and 3D graphics, images, text, particles, presentations, web-pages, videos, sound and MIDI, etc. It includes the ability to share desktops with other Etoy users in real-time, so many forms of immersive mentoring and play can be done over the Internet.

Etoys is:
– an educational tool for teaching children powerful ideas in compelling ways
– a media-rich authoring environment and visual programming system
– a free software program that works on almost all personal computers
