My plan has been to introduce students to robotics by using these kits. I was originally worried that students would find them to be too "young," but that hasn't been the case. There has been a lot of interest in the projects. By far, the most popular has been this crane.
I can't wait to show off what we make next.
FYI: A student looking over my shoulder has just informed me that you never add an "s" to the end of the word "Lego." Apparently, I'm going to have to do a push-up every time I say the word "Legos."
