Terrapin has expanded, revised, and re-released 101 Ideas for Logo as an online digital resource. 101+ Ideas for Logo includes Logo coding challenges for all skill levels—from drawing simple designs to creating complex projects. The ideas encourage students to explore graphics, multiple turtles, animation, word play, music, numbers, and all aspects of Logo.
A Terrapin Logo license includes 101+ Ideas for Logo as well as Logo Works: Lessons in Logo, a step-by-step tutorial in Logo programming. This combination of "how to" and "what can you do" makes Terrapin Logo an even more powerful environment for learning and discovery.

What do students gain from using Logo? Academic research with 85 fifth graders has shown that over a span of just eight weeks, Logo programming improved their creativity and problem-solving skills.

The Logo Turtle Comes to Life
Bring the Logo turtle off the screen and out into the world with the InO-Bot turtle robot! Send InO-Bot around the classroom with the same commands used to move the Logo turtle around the screen.

Connect InO-Bot to Terrapin Logo with a simple command or by clicking the Bluetooth icon. The screen turtle becomes an InO-Bot image and all movement commands are executed on screen and by InO-Bot at the same time.

InO-Bot holds a pen that you can raise and lower so it can draw just like the screen turtle, a feature that motivates and challenges students. With InO-Bot and a Dry Erase Mat, students can create exciting designs.

A Terrapin Logo Multi-User License now comes with InO-Bot as a special bonus. Combine Logo with a turtle robot to boost learning and fun in the classroom!
