LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT
All teams must have a LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT to participate in the FIRST Tech Challenge. The NXT is the processor that will act as your robot’s brain. You will write, compile and download computer programs onto the NXT using either LabVIEW for LEGO MINDSTORMS or ROBOTC programming languages.
The LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT is sold through LEGO Education North America and can be purchased separately for $265 or bundled as part of the TETRIX Competition Kit.
