From the StarLogo TNG FAQ:
"What is the difference between Scratch and StarLogo TNG?"
"Both Scratch and StarLogo TNG share a common heritage with LogoBlocks,
a tool to create programs for Crickets. The two tools are written from
entirely separate code, but we do share ideas. The audiences are
different for the two products as well. Scratch is primarily designed as
a tool to make computational multimedia projects for kids, targeted at
Computer Clubhouses. StarLogo TNG is designed for more formal education
environments such as introductory programming classes, or subjects (such
as biology, chemistry, physics, etc.) where modeling is an important
part of the curriculum. They're both interesting tools, and you should
check out Scratch when it becomes available."
Scratch is built on Squeak.
