StarSqueak is a Squeak version of Mitchel Resnick's Star Logo, a simulation environment designed to explore massively parallel simulations with hundreds or thousands of turtles. See the excellent book "Turtles, Termites, and Traffic Jams: Explorations in Massively Parallel Microworlds" by Mitchel Resnick, MIT Press, 1994.

The StarSqueak package morphs to do turtle graphics with several turtles at once (StarSqueakMorph, StarSqueakPatch, StarSqueakTurtle).

It is based on ideas from
