you are ready to use the full Cricket Logo programming interface.

Notice the text field labeled Run This. Any command you type
into this line is triggered when you press the white Run
button on the Cricket. For the Virtual Cricket, you triggered its
program by clicking on its white button (labeled in the lower right
corner of the Cricket).
Let's try it. Follow these steps:
- Type a, onfor 10 rd into the Run This
- Click the Download buttonthis installs the Run This
line (and the Procedures) into the Cricket.
- Now, click on the
white circle labeled Run Button on the Cricket itself.
The Cricket's motor should turn on for 1 second. If you click on
the Run Button again, the motor should turn again, in the
opposite direction. If this were a real Cricket, you could take it
away from the computer and trigger its program whenever you like!
