Robolab for FLL

Last night I had the chance to work with a local FIRST LEGO League team using Robolab on their NXT robot. It was a very enjoyable experience especialy after the miserable day I had had at work. In the few hours I spent with them I was able to communicate significant engineering and programming concepts. Something I would never have been able to do in NXT-G. At the tournaments I had judged at in previous weeks, most of the teams were not using sensors. When asked it was because they “did not work”, “not as accuarate”, “too hard”, or any number of reasons. And when dealling with NXT-G language all very valid. But watching last night’s robot follow a line at nearly full bore just made my heart sing with joy. All teams should be required to use Robolab.
