LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 Core Set
Combine all the best elements of STEM in your computing lessons with the LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 Core Set. This set from LEGO Education includes everything you need to develop skills in design, construction, engineering, coding and communication.
Pupils can use the LEGO bricks included to build imaginative models that can then be brought to life by coding the Intelligent Brick (included). The Intelligent Brick from LEGO Education is the brain of LEGO MINDSTORMS creations. Students can program the brick to use information from input sensors to control the movement of the model it is attached to. As is to be expected from LEGO, the possibilities are endless. If your pupils can think it up, you can create it using LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 Core Set.
Students can program their models wirelessly using the EV3 Software or EV3 Programming app. Both are designed using Python – a real-life programming language which helps to prepare pupils for future careers in coding. The EV3 Software and app are an intuitive drag-and-drop style of coding making them perfect for beginner coders. More experienced coders can use Scratch to code their models.
Project-based STEM learning is a breeze using LEGO MINDSTORMS, especially as a curriculum guide with 48 individual projects is included in the Core Set. Set a challenge for pupils and watch as they work in groups to solve real-world problems using robotics.
• Prepare your students for futures in design, engineering, construction and coding through the most exciting STEM lessons they will ever experience!
• Teach coding safe in the knowledge you have everything you need to get you started, no matter what your level of specialism.
• Use models to carry out scientific and mathematical investigations by programming the 5 input sensors included: gyro, ultrasonic, colour and 2 touch sensors.
• Provide freedom for creativity whilst still giving the structure needed to progress pupils in their STEM learning journey.
