If any of you use or interested in using the Lego Mindstorms NXT, I recently made a Web Quest to use in the classroom. It includes printable handouts that can be used in the activity, as well as lots of resources on getting started.

The Web Quest can be found at:

I am looking at using this as part of my 7th grade intro and intermediate robotics classes next year. I really like how you have this laid out. I do have a few questions. How do you use the webquest? Is it as an introduction and used over time or part of a culminating project for the unit? Also how do you start out your robotics classes/unit? I am thinking of starting out with some work on logical thinking and simple programing exercises like programing themselves to do a simple task. Hopefully showing them the steps involved in the programing process then move into simple programing of the lego robots using the software. Any thoughts or insights would be greatly appreciated

The webquest is mostly an introduction, but it is assumed that the students have some familiarity with the robots. I introduce the the various parts of the robots This information can be found on the Lego website or with the pamphlet that comes with the kit.

I will be checking my page more now that school will be beginning soon. I hope that information helps. Good luck to you and sorry it took so long to respond.
