EV3 Activities for the Busy Teacher

This sample of a teacher guide introduces basic robotics using Lego EV3 hardware and software – the activities are based upon a single robot model which can be constructed from the education core set.

Students learn about basic movement of the robot rover in the context of space exploration.This context...

Chemical eruption

Students recreate the reaction of a volcano using baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) and vinegar (dilute acetic acid).

Good vibrations

Students can see sound vibrations through these three practical engaging experiments.

Over the rainbow

Students experiment with prisms and 3D cinema glasses to explain some of the interesting properties of light and their cinematic application.

Magic drum

In this activity students make their own zoetrope, which creates the illusion of a moving pictures by rapidly spinning individual static pictures. A movie is traditionally made from 24 frames of individual images played per second to create the moving picture.  Originally a vintage toy from the 1830s, a zoetrope (...

Make it Move: Electric Racer

In this design challenge from the National STEM Learning Centre and Network, students build an electric racer powered by a super-capacitor. Students must construct the racer and choose which pulley ratio will enable it to cover the greatest distance.

Students decide on the pulley ratio following observations...

Make It Move: Muscle Wire Actuator

In this design challenge from the National STEM Learning Centre and Network, students construct a lever that is moved by muscle wire. This is a conductor that contracts when an electric current is passed through it. The wire movement controls a lever.

Students are asked to consider:

* What are the...

Make It Move: Rotating Arm Actuator

In this design challenge from the National STEM Learning Centre and Network, students make a rotating arm actuator. This uses a geared dc motor to turn a friction fit arm. Two cams can be set at different angles to operate limit switches to control the movement of the arm.

Power is fed to the motor using an...
