Embedded in ROBOLAB are context help and extended help information and examples. A PDF is available on the ROBOLAB CD that focuses on teaching readers how to use different components of the software. Several books have been written that focus on tips and tricks for using ROBOLAB and LEGO bricks and accompanying activities for use with students. These books include Physics by Design by Barbara Bratzel ( http://www.collegehousebooks.com/physics_by_design.htm ) and Engineering with LEGO Bricks and ROBOLAB by Eric L. Wang ( http://www.collegehousebooks.com/lego_bricks.htm ). Carnegie Mellon’s Robotic Institute has developed additional support. Their “NXT Mobile Robotics Curriculum” and “NXT Engineering Projects Curriculum” is available at from your LEGO Education distributor. The web also serves as a means of finding information, new capabilities, suggested ways to use the software, classroom curriculum, and additional tutorials on using ROBOLAB. The web component is a continually growing environment where we update and add new material and sample curriculum all the time. This guide is designed to serve as an extended reference resource for the ROBOLAB software. It aims to supplement the other support and help components that already exist. With nearly 300 pages of information, the ROBOLAB Reference Guide is best used as an interactive electronic document from which pages or sections can be printed if needed. The Guide is a dynamic project, continually growing and being updated. The most current version is available for download at www.legoengineering.com.
