LEGO Technology

Marshall University's Continuing Education Department is sponsoring Children's College from February 12 through March 4, 2000.  The student participants are working through the LEGO "Miss Adventure" projects.  The "Miss Adventure" story is one that resembles the story of Robinson Crusoe.  Our "Miss Adventure" story begins with a ship wreck that results in the ship being left on a reef.  The victims must leave the ship and reach an island that is conveniently near.  Using parts of the ship, a raft is fashioned to float our heroes to safety.  After making land, the survivors must continue to use materials at hand to solve problems and survive until they may be rescued.


Mrs. Hamilton, the LEGO Technology Instructor works with a student building a model from one of the LEGO element kits.  In the next few weeks the students will construct models from the LEGO kits and then will construct them virtually with LEGOCAD, a software program from LEGO Dacta.  The students constructed a raft, two signals, and a vehicle for travelling around the island.  Next week, the shipwreck survivors will concentrate on food, water, and housing.
