From the site:
“Got a LEGO NXT robot kit but don’t know where to begin? Come learn the basics of LEGO NXT Robot Programming and discover a new way to bring math, science, and computer science content to your students both in and out of the classroom. By the end of this class, you (YES YOU!) will have built your own robot and programmed it to dance around the room.
This course is specifically designed for K-12 teachers, but is free and open to anyone who is interested in learning about LEGO NXT robotics.
The course starts in October”
