Papert is most known for his invention of the Logo computer programming language, together with Wally Feurzeig and Cynthia Solomon. The logo is used mainly for education in computer programming. The programmer commands a turtle which draws pictures in the sand with its tail. The name of the language was derived from Greek logos meaning “word” or “thought.”
