One thing I love about the NXT is it's easy entry point. Just about anyone can quickly and easily get into robotics. This is a short video we took at a recent workshop being run for grades 6/7.
All students had never used robots before, and this was what we got up to in 2.5 hours class time. They learnt the basic 'Move' block and we finished up by integrating the 'Wait for Sound' block.
