Teens: Robotics and Programming with LEGO® EV3
Get Hands-on Experience and Learn Practical Engineering and Robotics Skills
Students design, build and program awe-inspiring robots using LEGO’s most advanced and newest robotics technology – the powerful MINDSTORMS® EV3. The EV3 features an easy-to-use graphical interface that lets students immediately begin simple robotics programming and then advance into developing more complex algorithms. Using the data-logging feature, students experiment with sensors to collect and analyze key data.
Students get experience working with engineering and mathematical concepts such as estimation, and learn to calculate distance, time and speed. Classmates work as a team to complete projects and win games created specifically for EV3. The EV3 is today’s most advanced robotics system for hobbyists and features improved digital sensors, a seven-state color-light sensor, new gyro sensors, touch sensors and an improved ultrasonic sensor.
