Abstract: This paper reports on a study pertaining to students at two elementary schools in Year 1 and Year 7 with the students using Lego robotics in their classrooms. More specifically the robotics is Lego’s green city challenge as the students will be studying sustainability. Data for this study will be collected from a variety of sources including student artifacts and interviews. This research will add to the body of literature on teaching robotics and in developing pre-service teacher confidence in using and teaching robotics.
