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."

Tom J. Price Norris Middle School Firth, Nebraska

"Energizing classes is not a problem with MicroWorlds EX Robotics Edition. Students naturally are excited about building robots and programming them with the MicroWorlds text based language. At Lakeview we feel that using a text based programming language gives more substance to the programming and provides clear insight into how computers really operate. The software works perfectly with the Lego Mindstorms kits and provides an unlimited creative expression for today's kids."

"There is no better way to bring mathematics, science and engineering to life than with MicroWorlds EX Robotics for OS X. The software's ease-of-use and remarkable flexibility makes it possible to create multimedia projects on the screen that interact with three-dimensional robots constructed and programmed by even young children. In a professional development context, MicroWorlds EX Robotics for OS X provides educators with a rich minds-on context for understanding the power of project-based learning and recognizing the intellectual potential of their students."
