We think our products are great! But don't just take our word for it, here's what teachers have to say...

"I was first introduced to Logo about 20 years ago at the University of Nebraska. About 10 years ago when the opportunity came up to teach a 6-week exploratory class for seventh graders, I knew right away that I wanted to use MicroWorlds! Now that MicroWorlds EX is out, the students are not only experiencing computer programming at their level of expertise, but I firmly believe that MicroWorlds builds a strong foundation towards a future computer science career."

"MicroWorlds EX is all any teacher would need to create a balanced, challenging technology curriculum. The programming element of MicroWorlds EX is the perfect compliment to other areas of the curriculum that develop problem solving and logical thought. My students from Kindergarten to Grade Six are enthusiastic about the projects that we develop together. The turtle is our favorite amphibian."

"I have been teaching LOGO for 12 years now and I love the MicroWorlds software. I have made sure that at the school where I am currently the Technology Coordinator, P.S. 11 in New York City, we have always purchased a site license for this software. Last week when we did a MicroWorlds EX presentation at the the Apple Computer Store in Soho, as part of School Night."

"(...) We use MicroWorlds EX with 2nd through 7th grades. Our youngest students learn drawing commands, animation, and simple programming concepts. In 7th grade we use MicroWorlds EX to explore game theory and design. MicroWorlds offers us a unique environment for channeling our students natural creativity into exciting and thought provoking projects. (...) I would say it is the most valuable piece of software in our Grammar School computer curriculum."
