Simplified Logo Boards

These materials were inspired by Logo, a programming language for children written by Seymour Papert at the MIT Media Lab. Logo allows children to write a set of commands to move a turtle around a screen, introducing them to imperative computer programming. The simplified logo boards take a limited command set from Logo (left, right, forward, back, or in Logo: LT, RT, FD, BK), and make it tactile and human-powered.
