Lego EV3 for Education
This course focuses on learning how to program the new LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 robot, and how to navigate the new EV3 software. The course also covers how to use robotics as an organizer to teach CS-STEM (Computer Science, Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) concepts.
Our courses are designed around the National Research Council Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), Common Core Mathematics Standards (CCSS), the Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA) Framework. Attendees will have the opportunity to earn a Certificate of Completion by completing various assignments throughout the course.
This course is best suited for teachers and coaches with little or no programming experience who would like to learn both the fundamentals of EV3 programming and pedagogy associated with the accompanying STEM concepts. However, teachers with programming and robotics experience will find the class valuable for its focus on the EV3 language specifically, practice in troubleshooting student errors, and STEM integration aspects.
