LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 Core Set is a hands-on, cross-curricular STEM solution that engages students by providing the resources to design, build, and code their creations. A Core Set supports two students as they practice creativity, collaboration, communication, and critical thinking.
The system includes 541 elements, including the EV3 Intelligent Brick, interactive servo-motors, gears, sensors, and wheels that can be used for teaching science, technology, engineering, math, and computer science. To program the EV3 brick, students use EV3 software to create code that can control motors as well as collect Vernier sensor data using the NXT Sensor Adapter.
By using hands-on robotics kits, students produce coding sequences and commands that link cause and effect using input/output devices; use intuitive prediction tools to gain first-hand experience in forming hypotheses, and integrate math and science using physical constraints, and units of measurement.
