Lego Mindstorms is Lego’s way of engaging kids in Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) concepts. The units come with legos and a small computer designed to give commands to robots students build.
The focus of this after school program will be getting kids excited about robotics and programming.
Different robots can be built for different purposes or tasks. Then students will use iPads to write programs with commands for the robot. These commands are then loaded onto the Lego computer unit, and the robot will act on the commands in the program.
