Why was it done

My brother has been volunteering in a primary school in Israel for the past few years.He was trying to instill the basic programming skills in the children and he discovered that there are three main problems.The first is the language barrier (all the programming languages are using English and the children's do not speak the language ),the second issue is that currently there are not many online learning programs which address children.The third issue is the installation requirement of an appropriate programming environment in order to be able to start programming.For this reason we thought it would be a good idea to join forces and create TurtleAcademyThe inspiration for the project came from other projects like Khanacademy And a javascript learning project named Codecademy
