Caution, the LEGO Mindstorms NXT Education kit is no longer available and is replaced by the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 Education kit.
The LEGO Mindstorms kit is the best for robotics enthusiasts and learning in schools. It is the possibility for every child to build and program his or her own LEGO robot, thanks to the combination of the LEGO bricks that everyone knows and the new digital technology.
It's all made possible by the smart brick LEGO Mindstorms NXT Education LEGO: a programmable LEGO brick containing a microprocessor, an LCD screen, control buttons and ports for sensors and motors. This NXT brick can be connected to a computer via USB cable or wirelessly via Bluetooth technology. You can then program it in the dedicated environment or in one of the many others available free of charge on the Internet.
LEGO Mindstorms Education NXT allows you to control the smart brick directly from your computer. By assigning functions to the keyboard, you can have full control over the LEGO robot. Thanks to a color sensor, your robot can, for example, sort blocks or move in colored fields, which have different functions. You will also find additional sensors such as touch sensors and distance sensors. The set consists of 612 LEGO parts.
