Logo is a programming language, a derivative of Lisp called "Lisp with Pictures". The main draw of Logo is its use of a turtle-shaped cursor called the Turtle. Programmers can control the turtle's movements on the screen using commands like go forward, turn right, and draw a line. This makes it ideal for teaching basic concepts in math and geometry to children, as well as for introductory computer science courses. By seeing immediate graphical results from their code, students learn fundamental programming principles such as sequencing, iteration (loops), conditional logic (if-then-else statements), abstraction through subprocedures and recursion. It also provides tools for working with parallelism and concurrency by allowing multiple turtles to operate simultaneously.
