MicroWorlds EX Robotics comes with all the features of
MicroWorlds EX plus full programming
capabilities for the Cricket robot, the LEGO
Mindstorm® NXT and the LEGO RCX® Brick. With it, your
students are scientists and inventors as they plan projects, construct
models, and EXPLORE BIG IDEAS. Whether building airplanes or puppets, cars
or toys, students acquire significant science, technology and math skills
as they construct and program their models.
What you can do
- Build a model and control it using the procedures you
download to the Cricket, the LEGO Mindstorm® NXT or the LEGO RCX® programmable brick.
- Test programming ideas by sending instructions from
the computer via the LEGO® infrared tower to the RCX brick or via the Interface Cricket to the Cricket
or via USB to the NXT brick.
- Your model can also gather data as it runs - data that
can be displayed using other MicroWorlds EX Robotics features.
- Use MicroWorlds' EX features to build an onscreen
presentation or simulation in which an onscreen event triggers the model to start.

We think our products are great! But don't just take our word for it,
here's what teachers have to say...
"I was first introduced to Logo about 20 years ago at the University of Nebraska. About 10 years ago when the opportunity came up to teach a 6-week exploratory class for seventh graders, I knew right away that I wanted to use MicroWorlds! Now that MicroWorlds EX is out, the students are not only experiencing computer programming at their level of expertise, but I firmly believe that MicroWorlds builds a strong foundation towards a future computer science career."

"Energizing classes is not a problem with MicroWorlds EX Robotics
Edition. Students naturally are excited about building robots and
programming them with the MicroWorlds text based language. At Lakeview
we feel that using a text based programming language gives more
substance to the programming and provides clear insight into how
computers really operate. The software works perfectly with the Lego
Mindstorms kits and provides an unlimited creative expression for
The Lakeview School
"There is no better way to bring mathematics, science and engineering to
life than with MicroWorlds EX Robotics for OS X. The software's
ease-of-use and remarkable flexibility makes it possible to create
multimedia projects on the screen that interact with three-dimensional
robots constructed and programmed by even young children. In a
professional development context, MicroWorlds EX Robotics for OS X
provides educators with a rich minds-on context for understanding the
power of project-based learning and recognizing the intellectual
potential of their students."
