LEGO® Leaders at Robotics, Robotic Maneuvers, Missions and Battles Working with LEGO® Mindstorm™ systems and other LEGO® robotic kits, motors and sensors, children build a variety of robots in 12 different themes, and RCVs (Robotic Combat Vehicles). The step by step robot-building instructions for all robots are provided on laptop computers by interactive LEGO™ software. After testing their RCVs and other robots on laptops for correct mechanical construction and functionality, they get launched in to the battlefield. Each mission is unique – having a different backdrop and requiring different level of expertise to accomplish using the ‘remote maneuver and control system’, and each mission is time bound. There are 10 missions available to attempt. The other robots that they build are hooked on to the laptops to display their calisthenics by making simple programs with graphical software designed by MIT Media Lab for children. Children will work in pairs. Each team has one PC laptop, one complete set of LEGO® Mindstorm™ construction box and other LEGO® robotic kit, motor and sensors assigned to work with all through the session.
