  1. We did this activity to introduce the students to the NXT kits. At the beginning, we went through some of the pieces and said the names of each piece so that the students would know what to call them. They were told to make any sturdy structure and it had to be sturdy enough to drop from Allie's knee. This was very successful in orienting the students with the lego pieces and most of the structures were sturdy enough to pass the drop test.
