LEGO Mindstorm

This is the first peek of something I am sure we will be seeing a lot more of here in the weeks to come. Seeing the Lego Robotics competition at the College Royal has had William all frothed up about getting his own LEGO Mindstorm kit, so a few days ago we made the trip and picked it up for him. This is one of those home school investments that cost a bundle now, but has been worth it already. In the few days that it has been here, he has played for an average of 3-4 hours each - sorting pieces, building, programming, and just staring at it with a big smile on his face. Basically, this is the ultimate Lego kit - build it, attach the motor, program it on the computer, and watch it go. I will post more as he finishes a masterpiece or two!
