Why Lego?

Why build robots with Lego NXT?  In student labs at ESU we have used Lego RCX, Lego NXT, Boe-bots, and Vernier sensors.  I also have several Roombas.  Robots are expensive.  Just the gripper for a typical industrial robot costs more than a new car.  I also wanted to be able to try out many different robot designs. Lego is not cheap but it was the most economical of the choices we had.

  1. Is there a robotics class now, or is this part of digital electronics or a computer science/physical science/pre-engineering class?
