In this class, we will teach your children about everything they need to get started with LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 Technology. From the EV3 Brick, sensors, and motors, to the computer-based LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 Software and tablet-edition EV3 Programming App. Every two students will work in a team to share one set of computer and EV3 Lego kits. This way, the cost is lower for each student. EV3 TECHNOLOGY We start off by introducing them to the programmable intelligent EV3 Brick. Then we take them through the various motors and sensors that they can connect to the EV3 Brick to transform it into your very own robot, ready to perform any task. Next, we show them how to connect their EV3 Brick to a computer or tablet and then explain the various functions and settings available in the EV3 Brick Interface. EV3 SOFTWARE we introduce them to the computer-based EV3 Software, including the installation process and various screens, tutorials, and tools. EV3 PROGRAMMING APP We introduce students to the various features and functions of the tablet-based EV3 Programming App. During the week long learning, students will be immersed in the following categories: Basics Learn how to control the Driving Base and trigger events based on input from the various sensors. The Introduction to Robotics Lesson Plan PDF covers most of this. Beyond Basics Grasp the fundamentals of more complex topics, such as program loops, switches, multiple switches, arrays, and data wires. Hardware Familiarize yourself with the Intelligent EV3 Brick and its assorted sensors and motors. Data Logging Master various Data Logging concepts, such as live and remote Data Logging, Graph Programming, and Dataset Calculation. Tools Learn how to use the various tools that are included.
