Key stage 3 - 4+

Mindstorms

The exciting LEGO® MINDSTORMS sessions enable students to build, program and test their solutions based on real-life robotics technology. It contains the EV3 Intelligent Brick, a powerful small computer that makes it possible to control motors and collect sensor feedback, as well as providing programming and data logging.

Students are encouraged to brainstorm in order to find creative solutions to problems and then develop them through a process of selecting, building, testing and evaluating them.  This is also an excellent way of getting students to talk to each other and co-operate as well as giving them hands-on experience with an array of sensors, motors and intelligent units.

Robotics is an exciting way to bring science, technology, engineering and mathematics to a classroom, inspiring our future engineers!

Key learning values:
