I have a lot of laptops with the 'old' LabVIEW Mindstorms. I am about to start teaching Lego robotics to a homeschooling group I'm a part of.
Here's what I have:
- a few old Windows laptops with the LabVIEW Mindstorms
- my Mac running Big Sur (that therefore cannot run the LabVIEW Mindstorms)
I can do a few things to make this work, like I can finagle running the old Mindstorms on the new macOS - (or try to anyhow).
But my question is: Would it be worth it? Assuming that its not impossible for me to run the old LabVIEW on my laptop AND assuming I can run the newer programs on the OLD laptops. Which would be better to teach "today's students"?
Is there something about the LabVIEW that would be worth kids learning over using scratch to program these robots?
I hope this all makes sense - its late and my head is spinning from all the information!
Thank you in advance!
ETA: The age group I'm teaching will be 13-15.
