Engage your students with the thrill of designing, building, and programming LEGO Mindstorms robots!
All sessions include a robot build, learning about different sensors and motors, and how to program them to complete challenges. We often customise sessions to fit class topics, and offer one-off introductory sessions through to term-long courses to really engage with the LEGO Mindstorms equipment.
We're always glad to work with you to create courses that fulfil your needs. However, to give some examples, our most popular activities include:
- "Introduction to LEGO Mindstorms", where the youngest of robot-builders learn the basics of building and programming using LEGO Mindstorms.
- "Rescuebots", where students design, build, and program robots to respond to an infra-red remote control. The goal is to follow a course and 'rescue a victim'.
- "Dozerbots", where students design, build, and program robots to race against the clock, aiming to clear an area of LEGO as fast as possible.
- "Battlebots", where students design, build, and program robots to battle against one another. The last robot surviving is the winner!
