Lego Robotics | ExtraEd - Build and Program Robots

LEGO Robotics

Nimble fingers, nimble minds.

Build as a team. Working in groups, students tackle each LEGO robotics build together. They make a plan, assign roles among their team, and follow step-by-step instructions to completion.

Bring robots to life. Students are challenged with programming various motors to operate their robots. Problem-solving skills are put to test as students troubleshoot the task of springing their creations into action.

Invent it yourself. Building from the instructions is only half the fun. Once familiar with the functions and logic of their LEGO kits, students engage their creative minds as they invent original creations.
