There are currently two main software packages that are used to program the RCX (and hence a robot); for Project Inter-Actions, we decided to use ROBOLAB[TM], a software program developed in partnership with the the Tufts University Center for Engineering Educational Outreach (CEEO), National Instruments, and Lego Education, because most of the instructors were extremely proficient in its use.
While some were undergraduate child development majors or graduate students in the teacher education program at Tufts, others were engineering students focusing on K-12 engineering education at the CEEO. Thus in each session, there were instructors who were strong in the technology as well as instructors who were strong in teaching.
