Lego Mindstorms is a programmable robotics construction set based on Lego bricks. The kit has all the components needed to create any of 17 robots and make them walk, talk, and move. The kit comes with free software and apps that can be used to build, program, and control the robots from a PC, Mac, tablet, or smartphone.
For an example of using MakeCode see Programming with MakeCode
Suggestions of possible uses for MakeCode for Lego Mindstorms, include making the Lego robot escape from a maze, detect different colored objects, or turn into a musical instrument.
An interactive simulator is also included to provide instant feedback on which sensors and motors are connected to which ports on the brick. The simulator can also be used to change sensor input values, see how motors are behaving, and view information on the screen.
