design, build, & program your own robot
LEGO Mindstorms NXT
Introduce your child to programming by building a LEGO robot! Our sons and daughters (as young as 7 and old as 13) enjoy the set. Some like building. Others like programming. They all like LEGO!
Our kids have especially enjoyed being in the FIRST LEGO League Challenge each of the last three years. Not only have they learned more about designing robots to accomplish specific tasks, they’ve learned a great deal about teamwork.
This updated Mindstorms set just became available this fall.
Don’t be fooled by a “good deal” on an old set. The new set is well worth the price. You can read about it here, on the LEGO Mindstorms web site.
