LEGO Mindstorms and Programming Language Concepts

Axel T. Schreiner

A Provost's Learning Innovation Grant was used to buy 21 LEGO Mindstorms kits. About a dozen different programming environments for the little robots were used as examples in one section of the PLC course last Fall. Something must have been different because these students did not achieve the same results on the same final as students in a conventional section.

This is the project report and evaluation.
