Picture of How to build and program a NXT Lego robot

      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.

 

Cost:

NXT Lego Robot Kit             depending on the kit  >$100

Time:

Depending on how steady you hands are and you easily frustrated you get:  :30 – 1:30

It really depends on the kit that you purchase. The smaller ones cost about $100 but they can go upwards of $250.

Thanks
