Background

Before introducing the Lego / Robolab Amusement Park kit, we used Sherston's Mission Control software for our control technology.

Through 1999 - 2000, I trialled the use of the Lego / Robolab Amusement Park kit for the Kent NGfL content project. I submitted an evaluation of the work I had done with some of the children in my class, which can be found on the Kent NGfL site For this project, we used Pilot Level programming only.

This year, 2000 - 2001, my main aims were to develop control technology even further and to increase the school's resources so that I could try out different teaching strategies and involve more children. With the funding I received from Kent NGfL, I was able to buy another Amusement Park Kit and the Starter Set, a set of extra lights and fittings, increase the number of RCXs and infra-red towers to 6 of each, and licence the software to allow me to run the program across the network. I also managed to obtain the Cities and Transportation kit free with the Tesco Computers for Schools vouchers we had received.
