Hoyles, & Noss, 1995). Hal Abelson, Seymour Papert, Brian Silverman, Randy Sargent, Uri Wilensky, Ryan Evans, and Andy Begel have provided encouragement, inspiration, and ideas for the StarLogo project. Thanks to Andy diSessa, Celia Hoyles, Richard Noss, and Laurie Edwards for organizing the NATO workshop for which I wrote this chapter, and thanks to Andy diSessa, Yasmin Kafai, and Greg Kimberly for comments on an earlier draft of it. The LEGO Group and the National Science Foundation ( Grants 9153719-MDR and 9358519-RED) have provided financial support for this research.
