Best for ages: 10+ years
The system includes the EV3 Intelligent Brick, a compact and powerful programmable computer that makes it possible to control motors and collect sensor feedback using the intuitive icon-based programming and data logging software that is delivered with the set.
The set is delivered in a sturdy storage bin with a sorting tray, three Servo Motors, five Sensors (Gyro, Ultrasonic, Color and 2x Touch), a EV3 Rechargeable DC Battery, connecting cables, and building instructions
Includes 541 elements that we use for teaching robotics, science, technology, engineering, math, and computer science.
The LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 Core Set comes with a curriculum pack and includes 48 tutorials to help our students learn the basics of LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3.
The 48 step-by-step tutorials are designed to help educators and students master basic and advanced programming as well as hardware and data logging functions.
Software and apps
The easy-to-learn, easy-to-use EV3 Software and the EV3 Programming app are optimized for classroom as well as personal use. Programming is done by dragging and dropping icons into a line to form commands allowing students to build simple programs, and then easily and intuitively build on their skills until they are developing complex algorithms.
The data logging feature inside the EV3 Software is a powerful science tool for carrying out experiments. It is easy to predict, collect, view, analyze and manipulate data from sensors and see the data in interactive graphs. The software is based on LabVIEW, the industry-leading graphical programming language.
The LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 software lets our students:
- Program robots and other creations
- Document and track progress using the documentation tool
- Create and edit content
- Access the Robot Educator tutorials
- Log real-time data and calculate data sets (not available on the tablet app)
