Abstract

For primary schools we recommend ä computer science lab without computers", the opposite of the usual computer lab without computer science. Computer science is about finding strategies to solve problems. Starting from intuition, the strategies become seuqnces of computer-performable steps. Small programmable robots and Logo turtles can induce procedural thinking The pupils describe their own motion in Logo style and use a formal programming language to reproduce it in material robots or in virtual turtles. The interweaving of their body activities with the debuggingof their robot/turtle program is a sort of "concrete programming" and the process promotes the required abstraction.
