New Lego Programming Kits in School

We have recently invested in some new equipment from Lego.
Each set can be turned into 18 different construction projects with moving parts.
The movements, sound effects and timings can be controlled by computer.
The children have to create an algorithm (set of coded instructions)on the laptop - which is linked via a USB cable to the lego.

The children in year 6 are learning how to create and program all 18 projects so that they can act as mentors to younger children. The plan is to introduce the construction and programming skills into the whole school.
