For about ten years I was involved in "alternative education" as a parent and as a Director of a local Community School.
I have had a particular interest in the use of computers in education, and in the "Logo philosophy" of constructionist learning. I have worked with many of the students in hands-on computing and electronic projects using the Logo language.
The illustration shows a Logo turtle constructed with a group of 10 to 12-year-old children, using the motors and controllers from discarded 5" floppy disk drives.
