If you have teens who need a challenge, place a Lego Mindstorm in front of him. Lego Mindstorms provide instructions to build several types of bots including a robot, spider, and a viper. Teens are tasked with coding different motors using an iPad or a computer. Mindstorms run on bluetooth or wifi.
- They are $450 each.
- It’s time consuming. It takes a long time to build them and it takes a while to get the hang of coding them. If you are having several programs, then you should be okay. If you hare trying to do a two hour program, I suggest asking a teen to assemble your Mindstorms before class so you can focus on coding during class.
- Once teens get the hang of the motors, they can make anything they want.
- It’s endless hours of entertainment.
