    Pro-Bot equivalent for Win 7

    So it turns out that the software for Pro-Bots does not work with Windows 7.

    Does anyone have a good alternative for teaching control at KS2?

    Cheers.

    Have you tried it in "XP Mode"? (PITA, but cheaper than buying new kit).

    MS robotics studio interfaces with all sorts of robot gear, has a simulation environment, some ai stuff if I recall and is free. Probably way more scaleable for all types of robotics including the Lego NXT stuff.
