      we have been using the lego robots in IT for over a year now - the head of IT uses them to teach all sorts of things - particularly control etc. They are good fun. We had a competition to name them and they are called Wall-E, HAL (not that the kids knew who HAL was), Robbie, R2D2 and C3P0

      At my old school, we had 3 of these and they are brilliant!! We used to enter competitions held at HP in Bristol. The kids had to program the robots to complete different challenges and compete against other schools.

      As trips go, thats a good one!!

      I was quite impressed that they've thought about lesson planning and cross curricular learning.

      There's certainly a lot of scope for fun with that kit though :-)
