LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 Design Engineering Projects

New from LEGO® Education for the EV3 platform is Design Engineering Projects, a curriculum package with 30 hours of classroom instruction and open-ended problem-solving activities that make learning of science, technology, engineering and mathematics through real-life robotics engaging and fun for students. 

The curriculum features three main sections with five design projects per section for a total of 15 projects:

Make it Move:
Students are challenged to design, build and program robots that move using motors with rotation sensors. In five projects students apply mathematics and science knowledge to create robots that measure distance, measure speed, move without using wheels, maximize power to move up an incline, and move and turn to create regular polygons. Students will also apply their knowledge of simple and complex machines and use ratios to describe proportional relationships.

Make it Smarter:
Students are challenged to add sensors to their robots to control behavior and to measure, graph and analyze sensor data. In five projects, students develop robots that use sensors that measure ambient and reflected light, distinguish specific colors, measure distance from an object, recognize a touch sensor state (pressed or not pressed, or pressed and released), and measure angular displacement or rate of change.

Make a System:
Students are challenged to design, build, and program robotics systems built from subsystems. In five projects, students develop systems that move a ball, pick and place objects, simulate manufacturing, sort colors, and communicate their location. Students test their system, gather data, and use that evidence to engineer system optimizations and improvements. 

The structure of the activities in the Design Engineering Projects curriculum mimics the engineering design process used by scientists and engineers in many industries. Each project starts with a design brief explaining the challenge, uses videos of robots in action to make real-world connections, and culminates in a final project that can be shared and presented. Throughout the process students gain and use knowledge of science, technology and mathematics as they engineer a solution. This structure is designed to help students develop the 21st-century creative thinking, problem solving, teamwork, and communication skills required for success in school and beyond. 

The curriculum is digitally-delivered and installs directly into the LEGO MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 programming software lobby. The in-built content editor enables teachers to customize the curriculum and create their own lessons. It enables students to capture their work directly inside the content creating their own digital workbook, making classroom management and assessment easier. The Design Engineering Projects curriculum was written to match national curriculum.

It provides longer run time than AA batteries and can be charged without taking the model apart. The battery is included in the EV3 Education Core Set and has a charge time of around three to four hours.

It requires the 8887 DC Charger, which is the same charger as used for the rechargeable NXT DC Battery. These are sold separately.


Large Servo Motor

The EV3 Large Servo Motor is a powerful motor that uses tacho feedback for precise control to within one degree of accuracy. By using the built-in rotation sensor, the intelligent motor can be made to align with other motors on the robot so that it can drive in a straight line at the same speed.

It can also be used to give an accurate reading for experiments. The motor case design also makes it easy to assemble gear trains.

– Tacho feedback to one degree of accuracy 
– 160-170 RPM
– Running torque of 20 N/cm (approximately 30 oz/in)
– Stall torque of 40 N/cm (approximately 60 oz/in)
– Auto-ID is built into the EV3 software


Medium Servo Motor

The EV3 Medium Servo Motor is great for lower-load, higher speed applications and when faster response times and a smaller profile are needed in the robot’s design. The motor uses tacho feedback for precise control within one degree of accuracy and has a built-in rotation sensor.

– Tacho feedback to one degree of accuracy 
– 240-250 RPM
– Running torque of 8 N/cm (approximately 11 oz/in)
– Stall torque of 12 N/cm (approximately 17 oz/in)
– Auto-ID is built into the EV3 software


Ultrasonic Sensor

The digital EV3 Ultrasonic Sensor generates sound waves and reads their echoes to detect and measure distance from objects. It can also send single sound waves to work as sonar or listen for a sound wave that triggers the start of a program.

Students could design a traffic-monitoring system and measure distances between vehicles, for instance. There is an opportunity to discover how the technology is used in everyday items like automatic doors, cars and manufacturing systems.

– Measures distances between one and 250 cm (one to 100 in.)
– Accurate to +/- 1 cm (+/- .394 in.)
– Front illumination is constant while emitting and blinks while listening
– Returns true if other ultrasonic sound is recognized
– Auto-ID is built into the EV3 software


Gyro Sensor

The digital EV3 Gyro Sensor measures the robot’s rotational motion and changes in its orientation. Students can measure angles, create balancing robots and explore the technology that powers a variety of real-world tools like Segway®, navigation systems and game controllers.

– Angle mode measures angles with an accuracy of +/- 3 degrees
– Gyro mode has a maximum output of 440 degrees/second
– Sample rate of 1 kHz
– Auto-ID is built into the EV3 software


Color Sensor

The digital EV3 Color Sensor distinguishes between eight different colors. It also serves as a light sensor by detecting light intensities. Students can build color sorting and line-following robots, experiment with light reflection of different colors, and gain experience with a technology that is widely used in industries like recycling, agriculture and packaging.  

– Measures reflected red light and ambient light, from darkness to very bright sunlight
– Capable of detecting eight colors. It can tell the difference between color or black and white, or between blue, green, yellow, red, white and brown
– Sample rate of 1 kHz
– Auto-ID is built into the EV3 software


Touch Sensor

The analog EV3 Touch Sensor is a simple but exceptionally precise tool that detects when its front button is pressed or released and is able to count single and multiple presses. Students can build start/stop control systems, create maze-solving robots and uncover the technology’s use in devices such as digital musical instruments, computer keyboards and kitchen appliances.

– Cross-axle hole on button
– Auto-ID is built into the EV3 software


IR Beacon

This has been designed for use with the EV3 Infrared Seeker Sensor. The beacon emits an infrared signal which the sensor can track. The beacon can also be used as a remote control for the EV3 brick through signals sent to the infrared sensor. 

- Requires two AAA batteries
- Four individual channels
- Includes a beacon button and toggle switch to activate/deactivate
- Green LED indicating if the beacon is active
- Auto power-down if the unit is not in action for one hour
- Working distance of up to two meters


IR Sensor

The digital EV3 Infrared Seeking Sensor detects proximity to the robot and reads signals emitted by the EV3 Infrared Beacon. Students can create remotely-controlled robots, navigate obstacle courses and learn how infrared technology is used in TV remotes, surveillance systems and even in target acquisition equipment.

– Proximity measurement of approximately 50-70 cm
– Working distance from the beacon of up to two meters
– Supports four signal channels
– Receives IR remote commands
– Auto-ID is built into the EV3 software
