Engineering with LEGO Education


When your students learn to program robots, they learn to organize, express, and share their ideas in a whole new way. With LEGO® robotics in the classroom, your students learn coding skills that extend beyond the screen as they program robots to interact with the physical world.

Engage your Students with LEGO® Robotics

LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 gives students the power to create and command their own robotic LEGO® creatures, vehicles, machines, and inventions. By combining LEGO® elements with a programmable brick, motors, and sensors, students can make their creations walk, talk, grab, think, and do almost anything they can imagine.


LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 is a hands-on, cross-curricular robotics STEM solution that engages students by providing the resources to design, build, and program their creations while helping them develop essential 21st-century skills such as creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, and communication.

LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 Expansion Set

The Expansion Set contains a wide range of structural and mechanical elements to augment the LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 Core Set. Students can deepen their experience with the additional building programs and instructions.

Engineering Projects with LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3

Vernier Engineering Projects with LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3
This e-book contains 13 engineering challenges to build and program robots using the LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 Core Set, MINDSTORMS® EV3 Software, and Vernier sensors.
Engineering Projects with LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 Package
This package contains all the sensors needed for the projects in the Vernier Engineering Projects with LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 lab book.

NXT Sensor Adapter

The Vernier NXT Sensor Adapter allows Vernier sensors to work on the LEGO® MINDSTORMS® NXT and EV3 robotics system . There are over 30 compatible sensors for measuring everything from temperature, force, light level, UV level, pH, and more.

Vernier Engineering Contest

Vernier Software & Technology is committed to helping educators develop the next generation of engineers and scientists. To show our support, we are announcing the Vernier Engineering Award. This $5,500 award will be presented to one educator (a middle school, high school, or college instructor) who is innovatively using Vernier sensors to introduce engineering concepts or engineering practices to their students.

If you have developed engaging projects that incorporate activities such as reading Vernier sensors with Scratch to introduce coding, using sensors in the engineering design process, controlling digital outputs based on Vernier sensor inputs, or integrating your Vernier sensors with a robotics platform such as LEGO® or Arduino™, we invite you to submit an application.
