The Green City Challenge Combo Pack includes both the Green City Challenge Set and Activity Pack and is ideal as a step-by-step introduction to robotics in the classroom or as preparation for robotics competitions. The Green City Challenge Set contains three training mats, a challenge mat, and more than 1,300 elements for building the challenge models, such as a power plant, wind turbine, and dam. The training mats provide a field where students can test and practice their programming skills. The challenge mat offers a real-life setting for solving different missions so students can apply the skills acquired through the training.
The Green City Challenge Activity Pack includes seven easy-to-follow training activities, each supported by student worksheets, which guide the students from simple to more advanced programming. Students are then challenged to apply their programming and problem-solving skills by making their robots solve real-world engineering challenges related to renewable energy. Comprehensive teacher notes provide everything needed for easy implementation, including programming examples, building instructions, mission and rules, extension ideas, and more. Also includes a project that can be used for further research into the challenge topic of renewable energy.
The Green City Challenge Set and Activity Pack were designed for use with the LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education NXT Base Set and Software (sold separately).
