Just like the LbyM program, the logo that we have been using for LbyM has also evolved. When we received our second round of funding in 2018, we decided it was time for an update to a logo that provided a better connection to the electronics that we use in the program. Thanks to Aurore Simonnet, we now have a more engaging look that also extends into the layout of all the lessons and worksheets.
