LOGO is a language that can be said to have enabled "word operation" for the first time in the world of programming, making it possible to perform programming in a way that human beings can easily understand. For example, when drawing a square with a side length of 100, it is possible to command with only the following easy-to-understand command statement.


In 1969, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) developed a turtle robot that can be steered with LOGO and made it possible to output figures on paper with a pen attached. In this way, it became possible to draw "Turtle Graphics" which is the feature of LOGO.
