LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3
Instant STEM learning with best in class robotics solutions
LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 brings project-based learning to the world of computer science and STEM, enabling secondary students to improve critical-thinking, problem-solving, and collaboration skills. As inspiring as it is engaging and creative, you can use the EV3 robotics technology straight out of the box, and download the software, curriculum material and elearning modules for free. Your greatest challenge will be getting your students to leave the classroom.
LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 Core Set
This core set is optimized for classroom use and contains all you need to teach using the exciting LEGO® MINDSTORMS® set. It enables students to build, program and test their solutions based on real life robotics technology.
The system includes the Intelligent EV3 Brick, a compact and powerful programmable computer that makes it possible to control motors and collect sensor feedback using the intuitive icon-based programming and data logging software.
The set is delivered in a sturdy storage bin with a sorting tray, three servo motors, five sensors (gyro, ultrasonic, colour, and two touch), a rechargeable battery, connecting cables, and building instructions.
The easy-to-learn, easy-to-use software and the programming app are optimised for classroom use. Programming is done by dragging and dropping icons into a line to form commands allowing students to build simple programs, and then easily and intuitively build on their skills until they are developing complex algorithms.
Now available: MINDSTORMS EV3 MicroPython Programming Language
The new EV3 MicroPython programming language, now standard for all EV3 secondary school content, is an optimised version of Python for micro-controllers and enables students to acquire skills directly applicable to real-world Python programming.
