Lego’s are a big attraction to many young children. FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) has created a program for young children who can create robots out of Legos using a kit. As a team, kids create a robot out of this kit to perform a simple daily task. In this tutorial I will teach you how to build a robot out of the NXT Mindstorm kit. I will teach you how to write and run a program on how to move the bot forward and backward.
