proud to announce the availability of a Mac OS X version of MicroWorlds
EXT Robotics Edition.
Appropriate for students in grades 4 and up, MicroWorlds EX Robotics
Edition encourages the development of transferable problem solving
strategies and critical thinking skills by providing opportunities for

with the LEGO® RCX programmable brick (a micro-computer inside a LEGO®
brick) or with Crickets (tiny mobile computers that fit in the palm of
your hand), students can build a model and control it using the
procedures they download to the LEGO® RCX brick or Cricket.

integrate, visualize and explore different concepts. Students can even
build onscreen presentations or simulations in which an event triggers
their model to start.
Available on both Windows and Mac OS X platforms, MicroWorlds EX
