Lego is a long-standing, universally recognised brand which nearly all children and adults are familiar with. Now Lego has taken the familiar interlocking bricks to the next level with the awesome Lego Mindstorms EV3 robot kit. Build one of six exciting robots and control its movements with the help of the clever and innovative intelligent brick.
The Lego Mindstorms project is a great way to introduce children and adults to the world of robotics in a fun and entertaining way. The kit includes everything you need to build the starter robots, all of which are fully compatible with almost all other Lego products. This allows users to explore their imaginations to create functional working interactive robots.
The Lego Mindstorms EV3 set comes with instructions to make TRACK3R, a tank-style robot complete with spinning claw weapon, but there are five further models which can be sourced through the online community. Once users have familiarised themselves with the basic construction methods, it’s time to cut loose and start getting creative. Learn how to program your robots and customise them with a range of Lego Mindstorms parts and accessories.
