This is a link to Lego’s curriculum content for their EV3 Mindstorm RobotsDesigned as toys, they are incredibly robust and easy to be build, leveraging the Lego building skills of students. The Mindstorm software is based on LabView, which is used in industry for automation. However, this graphical ‘Dataflow’ approach to programming may jar with students’ experience of procedural languages like Scratch. There is over 30 hours of classroom instruction and problem-solving activities. Each of the activities begins with a design brief and ends with a final project that can be presented and shared.
Mind Cuber is an additional EV3 resource, it contains all the necessary resources to build a robot, capable of solving the Rubik’s Cube. Suitable for students aged 11- 14, this stand-alone project could be used as differentiation for the ‘most able’ or as a code club activity.
