Educate NXT



  • Educate NXT PowerPoints can be used:

  • In conjunction with Educate NXT the book or as a separate resource in the Robotics classroom.

  • By teachers to aid with lesson presentation or by students to aid their understanding of robotics concepts and LEGO NXT (Note: Programming solution slides can be found at the end of a number of PowerPoints. These slides should be removed if encouraging student autonomy in learning.)
