Teen LEGO EV3 Robotics Free-play
Have you ever wanted to learn how to make a robot come to life? Join us for this 3-day program to build and program LEGO Mindstorm robots. Come for one day, two days, or all three...it's up to you!
LEGO Mindstorms are robotic building sets that use Technic, a more versatile LEGO building system using beams, pins, gears and axles. EV3 is the 3rd generation robot in the Lego Mindstorms robotic line. In addition to the standard Technic building blocks, Mindstorms has three electric motors, five sensors, data cables and a “Brick”. The idea behind these kits is to allow teens to build, program, test, and modify robots.
Teens can work in groups, or individually on kits (as space allows). Open to grades 6-12; however, this is a trial-and-error program, so participants will not be given the answers to "fix" issues they may encounter with their robots. They will be expected to troubleshoot and come to the solution independently...because that is how we learn.
