The Crystal Rain Forest V2 is the latest version of Sherston's best selling, award winning adventure program. It has sold more than 20,000 copies in UK schools.
The rain forest is gradually being cut down and destroyed by the Cut and Run Gang. The Cut and Run Gang have poisoned the King because he ordered a stop to the destruction. The only way to save the King is to use the special crystals that are found deep in the rain forest. Your child must navigate his/her way through the jungle to try and find the life-saving crystals, learning and applying problem solving and
programming skills on the way.
This highly interactive program is designed around a series of carefully structured problems that introduce children to the simple programming language, Logo. The functions of Logo are
introduced and explored in a logical and sequential manner. As children progress through the activities, each challenge that they encounter introduces or consolidates an aspect of Logo, allowing them to gradually learn the relevant skills and ultimately be able to apply them independently. A separate Crystal Logo application is also included within the program and can be used to extend children's Logo skills in isolation from the adventure.
