The Author

Dan Lynn Watt and poet Molly Lynn Watt, lifelong social activists, are among the founders of Cambridge Cohousing, an intentional urban community of forty-one family units. Since 1998 they have lived collaboratively to reduce their carbon footprint. They coauthored, performed, and produced a CD, George and Ruth: Songs and Letters of the Spanish Civil War, based on his parents’ letters.


Dan’s work focused on promoting project-based learning in science, mathematics, and technology. He helped develop and promote the Logo programming language. He and Molly worked with teachers worldwide to support the use of Logo in classrooms. His Learning with Logo (McGraw-Hill 1983) was used by tens of thousands of teachers and students and translated into Spanish, Italian, and Chinese. Teaching With Logo, (Addison Wesley, 1986), coauthored with Molly, continues in use.
