We had been calling the project "little robot" until we could think of a name. Finally it stuck.

FORTH is simple and elegant if done well. PropFORTH is authored by a master. I figured propforth should be easy enough to teach a kid to built a programmable robot. The LittleRobot project is designed for a new apprentice to start in on bots. Our youngest successful participant was a 9 year old third grader. The instructions are "easy enough for a parenet". If you are a "read to the kid each night" type of parent, you can do this.
