EV3 Science Curriculum
This curriculum pack has been developed together with Fraunhofer IAIS, Europe's largest application-oriented research organization, and real science teachers. The pack consists of 14 engaging physical science experiments for middle school, utilizing the data-logging capabilities of the LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 hardware and software. Experiments are centered on energy (energy production and consumption), heat and temperature (melting points, insulation, and heat transmission), force and motion (mechanics and kinematics), and light (light intensity). Each experiment is designed to meet national curriculum standards, structured to fit a 45 to 90-minute science lesson, and incorporates small, engaging LEGO models that are easy to build and program. The EV3 software includes student-ready materials, teacher notes, building instructions, and sample programs.
In addition to the LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 Core Set (45544) and LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 Software, the Science Curriculum requires the Renewable Energy Add-on Set (9688), and the Temperature Sensor (9749).
