The LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 Core Set contains the software and elements to start teaching STEM subjects using robotics.
LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 enables students to build, program, and test their solutions based on LEGO building bricks and real-life robotics technology.
Through hands-on learning, LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 will enable your students to: understand forces and motion; graph and interpret rotation sensor data; develop robots capable of complex thinking using logical structures and sensor feedback; understand that complex systems are created from subsystems; and design, build and program a fully-functioning robotic system.
The Core Set includes 541 elements that can be used for teaching science, technology, engineering, math, and computer science.
The Core Set comes in a sturdy storage bin with a sorting tray for easy classroom management and includes three servomotors, five sensors (gyro, ultrasonic, color and two touch), a rechargeable battery, connecting cables, printed and digital building instructions, and LEGO® Technic building bricks for creating a wide variety of models.
At the heart of LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 is the EV3 Intelligent Brick. A compact, powerful computer-in-a-brick that makes it possible to control motors and collect data from sensors. It turns your students’ models into responsive moving robots.
The LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 Core Set does not come with a curriculum pack but does include 48 tutorials to help you and your students learn the basics of LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3.
The 48 step-by-step tutorials are designed to help educators and students master basic and advanced programming as well as hardware and data logging functions.
- Software and apps
You’ve built the models, now bring them to life using the powerful, easy to use LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 software and tablet app. Students can program their creations using an intuitive drag and drop interface that allows them to evolve simple commands into complex algorithms.
Bring experiments to life by setting threshold values for sensors, and assigning them actions, such as programming them to make a sound when a certain temperature is detected by the sensor.
The built-in content editor enables teachers to customize the curriculum and create their own lessons. It enables students to capture their work directly inside the software creating their own digital workbook, making classroom management and assessment easier.
The software is based on National Instruments LabVIEW™, the industry-leading graphical system design software used by scientists and engineers worldwide.
The LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 software lets your students:
- Program robots and other creations
- Document and track progress using the documentation tool
- Create and edit content
- Access the Robot Educator tutorials
- Log real-time data and calculate data sets (not available on the tablet app)
The software is Windows, Mac, Chromebook and iOS compatible.
