Logo is a programming language developed to teach people to think about thinking. Perhaps you remember programming Logo yourself as a student, drawing geometric designs with the turtle. Logo remains a viable, low-floor/high ceiling learning environment for people to explore programming. Logo also provides an interesting basis for personal fabrication projects. 3D printing provides a way to move from digital designs to physical artifacts or tools, a metamorphosis from bits to atoms. Participants will explore Logo programming using Turtle Blocks and learn how to fabricate their designs using Tinkercad. The designs will be 3D printed to create a collaborative sculpture. Participants will learn two different bits to atoms Logo programming workflows.
