Legos, Java and Programming Assignments for CS1
At ITICSE 2002, the Lego Working Group first outlined how the Robots can be used to teach CS1 using Java. It was decided that a special session at SIGCSE 2003 designed to collect "best assignments" would simplify highlighting the benefit of using Robots to teach CS1. The creator of the assignment judged to be best would then be awarded a LEGO MINDSTROMS:Robotics Invention System 2.0 that will be provided by Sun Microsystems.
