EV3 is the newest product line of the Lego Mindstorms format.
This workshop will provide an overview of the programming, allow participants to get started and learn about how to make the robot move. This program is designed for beginners with EV3.
Story starters is a great addition to any content area. Using the kit one can explore how to build and tell a story, define story related vocabulary (plot, climax, antagonist etc), create math story problems, recreate historic events etc… Training with the visualizer software will also be included in this workshop. Great for teachers of any grade level.
Simple Machines is a hands-on approach to learning about force and motion, gears, pulleys and other physics related content. This is perfect for elementary and early middle school teachers.
Lego WEDO Robotics is an early robotics program designed for students in grades 2-6. It involves design builds and programming that is easy to manage and helps children learn basic math and science concepts. If your students plan to use NXT/EV3 this is a great way to introduce them to programming.
