This workshop will teach you to make and control a LEGO robot. Using the most advanced LEGO computer system (EV3 MindStorms) you will design, build and control a robot with sensors for sound, colour, brightness, touch, gyro positioning and sonar and 2 high quality servos to rotate and measure to an accuracy of 1 degree. These can create an extraordinary system!
You will learn about algorithms, loops, if /or logic gates and basic coding. The student version of the LEGO programming language is free so will be able to continue the work at home.
All equipment, such as a computer and a full EV3 expansion set will be provided.

There is a free download of the LEGO software we use on the LEGO site and lots of Youtube clips about how EV3 works. There is also a site called LEGO first league that is all about using these robots
