Lego Mindstorms - Robotics
Lego Mindstorms NXT has been added to Technology Educations curriculum to help the students experience engineering aspect of STEM(Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics).
The legend of the Lego has gone from you home entertainment toys and collectors items to programming tool. The Lego blocks are intelligent programmable interface device we have made into robots.
The computer software allows students to practice programming the robots via USB interface. They arrange blocks on the computer screen and change variables that make their robot perform tasks prescribed by the teacher. Very challenging but gratifying educational tools and we are grateful to have them added to our curriculum.
