Goodbye Seymour Papert

Jetro - Posted on 02 August 2016

Last Sunday, July 31, Seymour Papert passed away at the age of 88. Papert was the first LEGO Professor of Learning Research and inventor of LOGO, the first programming language for children.

Seymour Papert worked closely with LEGO on the development of the first generation of LEGO MINDSTORMS, but that was not his only contribution to the company. His theory of learning, called constructionism, had a profound impact on what is now known as LEGO Education.

On the occasion of his death, HispaBrick Magazine has republished an article from HBM016 about the evolution of LEGO MINDSTORMS in which Seymour Papert plays an important role.
