CURRICULUM INDEX Teaching Science Through LEGO Engineering The following four curricula are designed to introduce students to various science concepts through design-based LEGO projects. The first several lessons of each unit engage students in scientific explorations sometimes using the LEGO toolset as a resource. The students are then charged with an open-ended design challenge where they use the science they learned alongside the engineering design process to design and build LEGO creations that meet criteria that the students can observe and test. Mini Intro Unit download PDF (2 MB) This series of introductory lessons should be completed before beginning a Science Through LEGO Engineering curriculum unit. Students will first be introduced to the engineering design process and its results in the world around us.
Kev's Cool Hardware Hack for converting a Lego Mindstorms NXT Light Sensor into a Laser Module!
Simple Windows Bluetooth Remote Pretty early on, I made a pretty simple Windows application, that could control an NXT over Bluetooth. I really haven't done much with it, but someone just asked me about it, so I figured I'd post it. There aren't many instructions. There is a very narrow button to the left of the "C" motor button.

The Lego Mindstorms NXT kit is an amazing upgrade to the original Lego Mindstorms product. While the building blocks are not the traditional plastic stud blocks everyone is used to, the new construction parts allow for some very complex designs. Additionally, Microsoft Robotics Studio supports the Lego NXT kit right out of the box, so it's quite easy to get up and going using MSRS with the Lego kit to start coding a robot in C# or VB.NET. With that in mind, this article will demonstrate how to use MSRS with the simple TriBot robot that can be easily built using the instructions included in the Lego NXT kit.
