Grades 6-8 Curriculum Set for LEGO Mindstorms (robots not included)


These LEGO Mindstorms curriculum sets utilize the same core challenges and activities as our LEGO Arduino curriculum sets, but the videos and materials explain how to use LEGO Mindstorms instead of LEGO Arduino.  Please note: our Arduino curriculum sets come with all the robotics kits necessary to implement the curriculum, but these Mindstorms curriculum sets DO NOT come with robots included.  If your school does not already own LEGO Mindstorms sets (at least 1 set per 4 kids), we recommend choosing one of our LEGO Arduino curriculum sets instead.  Our LEGO Arduino kits provide the same educational value as LEGO Mindstorms, at a fraction of the cost.
