Overview

Students start by building a basic robot (known as a BOT) from directions supplied by LEGO. Once the robot is built students learn to program the robot to perform different functions. Students are given tasks to complete with their BOT such as traveling a specified distance and making the robot stop in a square marked on the course. Students work in pairs in order to learn the value of working as a team.
