School programs and resources

This program emphasises logic and algorithmic thinking, requiring students to write a clear set of instructions for their robot using the Lego graphical programming language.

The program is a rich, STEM-based challenge, where students use their problem solving, creativity and innovation skills to achieve a motivating end-goal.

In this hands-on workshop, students learn how the inputs of a Lego Mindstorms robot control what it senses about the world around it, while the outputs control its movement or response.
