The Final Frontier
The latest curriculum advance for Lego involves sending its Mindstorms robots into outer space. Well, not really, but the company worked closely with NASA engineers to build a set of class lessons around the EV3 Space Challenge Set & Activity Pack. The $330 kit includes 30 hours of classroom material as well as Lego bricks and printed landscape mats to work on. The lessons include everything from Learning and Challenge Missions to Gears and Research Projects and might just produce a future astronaut.
