Virtual worlds robotic programming, computer science tutorials, and a clear and effective interface make this a great site to let students explore a multitude of programming options on their own. Great for learning to program NxT G at an individual pace. Students can earn badges. Students can also develop mathematics skills through robot behaviors. This is a rich resource and frequently updated and enhanced.
This a project that helps students understand the functions of cell organelles as they relate same to a city and the major facilities that make a city function.
