Or try Octave which is free and open-source but best supported on Linux - runs fine with Debian Wheezy on a Raspberry Pi board which sets you back £25 in`UK money.

The Student Version of MATLAB is restricted to students enrolled at in degree program (or in K-13). The license is not available to those who are taking courses without being registered as students. The Professional license would be the appropriate license in such a case.

I noticed that there is a LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT submission in the FEX. Grade schoolers as young as 1st and 2nd grade are learning to program these (I know there are kids in my neighborhood elementary school doing this), so maybe it isn't out of the question to ask TMW if they would allow student versions of MATLAB for grade schoolers.
