Lego Robotics w/ EV3

About Lego Robotics

Your children will build and program Lego EV3 Mindstorms – designed to help children take ownership of the learning process. This course helps develop the problem-solving skills and collaborative outlook necessary to become creators, not just consumers. 

This camp is for children ages 11 to 14. 

A Few Details

Lego EV3 Basics

Building:  Includes 541 elements that develop skills related to  science, technology, engineering, math, and computer science.

Activities:  Your children will design and build programmable robots using high quality motors, sensors, gears, wheels, axles, and other technical components.

Purposeful: By using hands-on robotics, students will gain a better understanding of how technology works in real world applications.

Skills Taught/Practiced

  • Computer coding
  • Critical thinking
  • Problem-solving
  • Creativity
  • Teamwork and collaboration
  • Sharing of ideas and resources
  • Adapting to new challenges

Why Programming?

Computer programmers continue to top the list of top earners in the professional fields. Schools today are not equipped to teach high level coding skills and this has created a huge demand for programmers that isn't likely to be filled anytime soon. Children who learn programming now will be in a position to land high paying jobs in the future.

Lego EV3 is a prefect step-up tool to advanced coding for our soon to be app builders, web designers, robotic programmers!

Prerequisites

Although it is not required, we do suggest your children, prior to this course, take our Video Game Programming, or similar course.  The programming aspect of Lego EV3 is somewhat similar - although more difficult - to that of Scratch. 

This course is intended for children aged 11-14.

What's Next?

After taking our EV3 course we try to point children in the direction of learning more complex computer coding though our Minecraft Modding course, Web Building, or our series of course in Rasperry Pi offered through our sister company Young Makers Lab.
