    What reviewers are saying...
  • "I think KAREL The Robot is the greatest way to introduce programming concepts that I have seen."
    —Tim Thurman, University of Kansas
  • "I first used this language in 1981 as a student. I found it to be stimulating and challenging. In 1984 I began using KAREL as a teacher. Since 1984 I have used KAREL every term except one. That term represented an experiment to see how students would do without using KAREL. I was not satisfied; the students performed poorly relative to those who used KAREL."
    —Peter Casey, Central Oregon Community College
