Scratch for 21st Century Skills

Need a way for kids to learn 21st Century Skills? Here's a new programmable language that makes it easy to create interactive stories, animations, music and art. You can download it for free for Mac or Windows.
It's called Scratch

Here's a quote from their site:
"Scratch is designed to help young people (ages 8 and up) develop 21st century learning skills. As they create and share Scratch projects, young people learn important mathematical and computational ideas, while also learning to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively."

Looks pretty cool!
