MIT Yellow Brick
MIT Yellow Brick Logo (MIT-YBL) is an implementation of the Logo
language for the LEGO RCX Brick. MIT Yellow Brick Logo includes:
- An MIT-written replacement for the firmware operating system that
is loaded into the RCX Brick, and
- Software that runs on a Macintosh or Windows 95/98 computer to
implement a text-based Logo interface to the RCX Brick.
MIT Logo Blocks (MIT-LB) is a graphical version of MIT Yellow Brick
Logo. Presently, MIT-LB is only available for the Macintosh.
MIT Yellow Brick Logo and MIT Logo Blocks are intended to be used
by educators in a classroom or workshop format.
It is important that MIT-YBL and MIT-LB be used under the
supervision of those who have a significant background in the use of
the Logo language with children. Therefore, we have established the
following requirements for the use of MIT-YBL and MIT-LB. You must
- Have five (5) years experience using Logo environments with
children. (Examples of Logo environments include: LEGO tc logo, LEGO
Control Lab, LCSI LogoWriter, and LSCI MicroWorlds.)
- Or, participate in a week-long intensive workshop in which MIT-YBL
and MIT-LB are used.
If you do not fit into either of these categories, but believe you
should be qualified to use MIT-YBL and MIT-LB, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please acknowledge the following conditions by which MIT Yellow
Brick Logo and MIT Logo Blocks are made available to you:
