Robotics with Enchanting and LEGO® NXT

Enchanting is free to use software that enables students to program LEGO Mindstorms NXT robots. Unlike Lego’s proprietary software, Enchanting allows the students to program in a Scratch like environment. The first resource is a teacher guide to NXT and the Enchanting IDE. It provides a detailed introduction to the software, including lesson ideas on how to introduce robotics into the classroom.

The second resource, the ‘Enchanting’ cards, are a set of student worksheets, each containing a different programming challenge. Suitable for students aged 11- 14 years, each card has the necessary building instructions and Enchanting code to solve a new programming problem. The cards utilise the range of sensors and actuators available for the NXT.
