The Lego Mindstorms system is at once approachable and complex.  It is a tremendous platform for learning because the options never end for what you can do. The element of competition provided by the FIRST organization and the FIRST Lego League (FLL) makes it even more alluring to kids.  Check out these photos of the past few years!

I love that I can type something in the computer and have total control over something in the real world.
