    We have been using a Lego Mindstorms EV3 robot for the last few years.  As Chris has said they are on the expensive side but the reliability and versatility of them pays off.  However I've only been working with groups of 10 or so, any more than that and it gets a bit messy and students don't have enough involvement to keep them motivated.  

    These work through a computer programme that you download for free so I would imagine would be fine on a Chromebook. 

    We have entered the First Lego League tournament for the last 3 years, this has been really great to encourage the students to work towards something with their learning.  

    Hope that helps!
