LEGO® MINDSTORMS®Education EV3 Introduction to Robotics 


The Introduction to Robotics Lesson Plan provides beginning lesson plans for implementing LEGO®MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 Software in the classroom. Each lesson and challenge will give students the help they need to prepare, run, and assess MINDSTORMS in their classrooms. The lessons are designed to grow students’ abilities to program their robots and investigate how sensors work. The challenges then provide a way for students to apply their learning to a more open ended task. It is up to you to select which, as well as how many of the provided extra tasks and challenges you want to use in your class.
