SNAP is a visual programming language developed at Berkeley University. Ozeki 10 extends SNAP with building blocks for robotics. SNAP was chosen, because it is a great first step to learn the logic of programming. It is very easy to convert the knowledge acquired in SNAP to more advanced programming languages, such as C#.Net.
