Lego EV3 Robotics: Getting Started


“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.”

- Benjamin Franklin

About this Event

Learn the basics of EV3 LEGO Mindstorms Robotics hardware, software, programming, and how to facilitate your very own robotics classes and clubs. We will start the course by you building your very own default EV3 robot. You will then be guided to program your robot to solve obstacles challenges. Each challenge will build upon programming techniques used in earlier challenges. The course will show you not only how to solve each of the ten obstacle challenges but also how to facilitate the challenges in a classroom full of students. Each challenge will be followed up with a reflection and discussion on the methodology used as well as differentiation options. All participants can and will be successful in Lego EV3 Robotics, Getting Started.
