Engineering with old EVO or NXT Lego kits!
This is a Level 3 Engineering Project.
This is exciting! We will be using old Lego NXT and EVO kits to learn how to engineer something that moves!
There are a lot of kits that will give you step-by-step instructions on how to assemble and program a robot. In this activity, we will not be following directions. The only way to get better at ‘figuring it out’ … is to figure it out. Your first creations might be weak or break, but over time, you’ll make stronger and stronger robots!
Useful links for teachers:
This site holds the resources for Innovative Arts class, a class that replaced our technology class in our middle school. Students learn to create as engineers, designers, and more. At the same time, we are learning about our brains/mindsets (‘Puzzle‘), engage technology (‘Shift‘) and the creative process (‘Create‘).
New resources are being added constantly, so I send out a weekly roundup email with all of the new resources. Sign up to stay in the loop.
