Thanks Karl,

Great link, and the school has been using this Robots book for a couple 
of years. The result has been an amazing uptake from the students - they 
"get" what is going on very quickly and have a lot of fun doing it.

The success there led the teacher to using Squeak for another course, 
and hence my question.

We do have a problem with the Robots environment though - when using it 
on latest versions of Mac OS X there are two issues. One with debugging, 
and one with asking for keyboard input. The computer lab  machines are 
all Mac OS X. I'll find out the exact details and post the issue as it 
needs to be sorted for that course.
