STEM & NXT Robotics: a Perfect Match...



-->
Recently at the FIRST robotics 10th Anniversary Celebration at the Javits Center in NYC, I was talking to an educator about how robotics can play an important role in S.T.E.M.
A perfect & inspiring example can be seen in a recent article: WizKidz Science and Technology Centers and Georgia Institute of Technology has received $490,000 from the National Science Foundation to implement computing learning institutes for students with disabilities.

RCX & Power Function Fans...

For those or you who still love the "ye ole" LEGO Scout, Spybotics, RCX or are into Power Functions check out this LEt'sGO Studio website: http://www.isogawastudio.co.jp/legostudio/modelgallery_a.html - it's rather interesting.

And for those who like LEGO mini-sculptures & electronic works look at
LEt'sGO Studio: Mini Works http://www.isogawastudio.co.jp/legostudio/modelgallery_b.html

On both these sites I see potential ideas for application to NXT robotics & there is a NXT compass...
