I had a chance this weekend to visit with some Atlanta, GA area teachers who are coaches or otherwise affiliated with the FLL. Kristie Brown, the LEGO Education representative gave a demonstration of the software and had 6 of the NXT bots assembled and available for "testing."
We got to look at the new playing field and the various tasks/challenges associated with the "Nanotechnology" theme... it looks SO FUN! If you have a chance to see a local, state, or national FLL competition, I highly recommend it... I can't wait to see what the kids come up with to solves these challenges.
On another note, I got to work with the NXT-G Education version of the software... the training tutorials are a little more interesting - there's a video demonstrating the motion of each bot which I thought was very cool... and the tutorials are very well done...
I got to see the case that the Ed version comes in... definitely wish we had that option with the retail kit, but that's okay... I like my cases anyway.
