Thank you for joining us for a wonderful week in our LEGO Robotics: AUTOmation Driven Tech Camp!
If you are interested in continuing your adventure from LEGO Robotics: AUTOmation Driven Tech Camp, below is information about how to purchase the equipment we use in Tech Camp.
Purchasing a LEGO EV3 Kit
There are two versions of the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 robotics kit. We use the Educational version in our LEGO Robotics: AUTOmation Driven Tech Camp. Here are the links to each version you can purchase, as well as descriptions that will help you understand the differences between the two versions. If you decide to buy a kit, just buy one of the two versions, not both.
- Educational Version of LEGO Mindstorms EV3 w/ Software $475
The educational version comes in a nice plastic tote. The educational software has builds and tutorials similar to what we built in camp. The educational version is intended for teachers who want to teach what each piece of the robotics kit does, and as such, there are tutorials that are focused on each sensor and basic skill. This kit has LEGO bricks, gears, pulleys, sensors, and motors to support the Educational builds.
- Retail Version of LEGO Mindstorms EV3 w/ Software $350
The retail version comes in a cardboard box, similar to all retail LEGO products. The retail software is identical to the educational software, except that it doesn’t have the educational tutorials. Instead, it has 17 awesome unique builds like the scorpion, snake, and humanoid. This kit has LEGO bricks, gears, pulleys, sensors, and motors to support the Retail builds, but does not have the $30 Gyro sensor that is included in the Educational version, as the Retail builds do not use the Gyro sensor.
