Interesting looking site.


I found this game programming toolkit from MIT similar to how NXTs
program and perhaps a good way for teams to practice their programming
skills without a NXT handy.  

 

http://scratch.mit.edu - I made a few video tutorials about how easy it
is to use:

It's not NXT, but it conveys the logic like NXT IMHO and kids can play
with it at home without needing a NXT kit.  It supports movement,
direction change, bump sensing, etc.  It's all in the context of making
games, but many of the programming logic is set up almost identical.
