lego::lab - Laboratory for Robotics with LEGO MINDSTORMS

The lego::lab introduces students to interdisciplinary issues in robotics. Robotics is about understanding the interaction between humans and machines. The physical world is to be reduced to principles of information technology as well as technically feasible kinetics. Using the LEGO MINDSTORMS system, the concept of robotics can be experienced by building robots and programming them. Involving students in school projects also teaches didactic skills.

Cooperations with schools

A workshop at lego::lab is probably the best opportunity for students to gain a comprehensive insight into the world of computer science while still at school. By carrying out school projects, we at lego::lab not only arouse interest in computer science, but at the same time participants get to know the university better and sound out their own strengths and abilities.
