Skye's NXT ramblings

The following video tutorials are an introduction to using NXT in FLL. The goal is to show a way to solve missions using nothing but the sample Tribot robot in the NXT user manual. We will be using the old Ocean Odyssey challenge as our proving ground.

Thanks to Ken Streeter a co-coach of the Mindstorms Mayhem team for providing server space for these tutorials.

These tutorials require the free Quicktime 7.X program to display. It is available here: www.quicktime.com.
