I have worked with students and Lego Robotics for quite some time. The program I offer is for 3 weeks in the summer and a few times during the school year. It starts simply, making a hand drill. We use the science of simple machines to create many many more models. As soon as a motor is introduced into the mix, we can program them off the computer to move up and down, backwards and forwards, with lights and sound. From there the kits get more complicated and we introduce touch, temperature, angle and light sensors. Once again using the computer to program them. Now we can add Input as well as Output. For the last few summers, we have been introducing the Lego NXT Mindstorm programmable brick.
