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.

LOVE IT! Thanks, Damien... I wasn't sure what to expect, but the synchronized movements were probably fun to program. Looks like the kids had fun.

We do other things like figure '8's as well as some maths figuring out how to make the robot drive exactly 500mm, but this is the final activity.

Technically not that difficult, but when they all come together it looks quite impressive.

And the kids love it :)
