Matthew,

 

The items at the LEGO Education Store are very confusing, and they do not
map directly to what you purchase from FLL.  Basically, the FLL Robot Set
(#979792) for $395.00 purchased during your FLL registration includes the
following three (3) Education products:

 

1 x Mindstorms Education NXT Base Set (#W979797) for $279.95 (include 437
elements/pieces)

1 x Mindstorms Education Resource Set (#W979695) for $99.95 (blue box with
817 elements/pieces)

1 x Mindstroms Education NXT Software 2.0 (#W900080) single license for
$79.95  **

 

** However, the FLL version of the NXT Education Software comes with an FLL
Team license (instead of a single user license from the Education Store).
Hence, you really don't need to purchase the additional software since the
FLL Team license gives you licenses for up to 10 team members plus coaches
(as long as it is related to FLL competition).  FLL also indicated that the
FLL Robot Set can be used from year to year (competition).

 

However, if you do need to purchase the NXT Base Set with the single license
software, you might want to look at the Mindstorms Education NXT Set &
Software Pack (#W991308) for $345.95 and Mindstorms Education Value Pack - 2
packs (#W991416) for $709.95.  There are also other multiple pack
arrangements with more discounts.  You can search for them by their product
(#W) numbers at http://www.legoeducation.us/store/default.aspx.

 

Best wishes,

T. (Curt) Tran

Subject: [VADCFLL-L] Purchasing additional robots

 

Hi there.

 

Today we registered our team (yay!) and also ordered the field kit and a
robot.  We had wanted to purchases three robots total but it seems like the
gofll.usfirst.org only seems to allow a single robot to be purchased.  I saw
there's a LEGO education site as well and they've got the NXT robots for
sale here:  http://www.legoeducation.us/store/detail.aspx?CategoryID=159
<http://www.legoeducation.us/store/detail.aspx?CategoryID=159&by=9&ID=1263&c
=1&t=0&l=0> &by=9&ID=1263&c=1&t=0&l=0  I'm wondering if that's where I
should be buying the additional ones.  It says "Educatation NXT software
sold separately" on that page.  Do I need to purchase software for each
robot? Anything I should know about that?  I want to make sure I can put the
software on 2 or 3 computers at the school and a laptop for tournaments.
There's probably a FAQ somewhere that gives me all this info but I'm just
trying to expedite the purchasing so we can do a robotics workshop next
month.

 

Any info/help you can provide me would be great.

 

Thanks,

Matthew Cuba
