Robotics & Technology Links

This page lists LEGO NXT projects resources for students (bottom right) as well as research sites for non-kit robotics. 

The MMS Robotics program curricula is divided into 5 segments.

  1. Introduction to Technological Design Methods & LEGO LabView Software/NXT Hardware
  2. Further practice with simple integrated machines at NXTPrograms.com.
  3. More complex systems with One Kit Wonders by Kelly et al
  4. Team Challenge Competition
  5. Open Competition
Students will also learn to reverse-engineer in order to learn from others.
