Introduce text-based programming to beginners using Techno Turtle. In this project students build programs using Python and the Turtle library. They explore how to sequence commands. The programmers gain expertise by drawing pictures, coding spirographs, and designing silly scenes. They then discover how to use variables to design a fun word game. Students expand their skills to invent a carnival game using conditional logic. Stop the mindless copying of scripts to write programs. Empower students to code original creations using the lessons in TechnoTurtle.
