Open Roberta is 2, well v2...

Remember the cool open robot platform we highlighted a few months ago? Open? Robots? Open Roberta!The good news is that they have continued to roll forward, recently releasing a new version, with new features and bots.WelcomeWhat's new?Version beta 2.0NXT - create programs for LEGO Mindstorms NXTBot'n Roll - create programs for the educational robotic kit botnroll.com®compatible with Arduino™Start programming with the new welcome tourImproved Open Roberta Lab performanceNeed a Open Roberta refresher?Roberta – Learning with RobotsA robot lady captured the youthThe Roberta initiative aims to engage and motivate girls and boys to take a sustained long-term interest in information technology, technology and the natural sciences. The Roberta training concept defines "sustained long-term motivation" as simultaneously imparting cognitive knowledge – in this instance from the world of MINT topics – and positive emotions. Only if both are achieved at the same time do students learn – or phrased differently achieve sustainable results. With more than 30,000 children and young people in over 600 documented Roberta courses – Roberta is now a permanent fixture in the German education landscape! Over the past ten years the concept, which was developed by Fraunhofer IAIS, has inspired thousands of young people, particularly girls, to take a more active interest in science and technology....Open Roberta LabThe programming environment »Open Roberta Lab" enables children and adolescents to program Lego Mindstorms EV3 robots. A variety of different programming blocks are provided to program motors, sensors and the EV3-Brick. Open Roberta Lab uses an approach of graphical programming so that beginners can seamlessly start coding. As a cloud-based application, the platform can be used without prior installation of specific software but runs in any popular browser, independent of operating system and device....Sounds pretty awesome, doesn't it? And besides the teaching, it's open source too, https://github.com/OpenRoberta/robertalabFollow @CH9 Follow @coding4fun Follow @gduncan411

Ben Hillis will deep dive into the inner workings of our most requested feature and show how these two environments can complement each other in some very interesting ways.
