You need to check your computer for the software for the Lego Mindstorm to do the coding. If it is not on your computer, let Mrs. Pennington know so that we can update it.

The brick is battery operated and Mrs. Pennington has replacement batteries.
The Clever Contraptions book has many smaller projects They are quicker builds and requires less coding. You can make smaller projects that run on simple codes. It could be a good way to learn how to make smaller contraptions if you are interested in later designing your own project.
