Post-Camp Info: LEGO Robotics

Thank you for joining us for a wonderful week in our LEGO Robotics Tech Camp!

If you are interested in continuing your robotics education below is information about how to purchase the equipment we use in Tech Camp.

Purchase a LEGO EV3 Kit

There are two versions of the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 robotics kit. We use the Educational version in our LEGO Robotics 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.

  • Educational Version of LEGO Mindstorms EV3 w/ Software $460
    The educational version comes in a nice plastic tote that keeps the pieces organized with software, builds, and tutorials. The educational version is intended for those that want to learn what each piece of the robotics kit does, which is why there are tutorials focused on each sensor and skill set. This kit has LEGO bricks, gears, pulleys, sensors, and motors to support the Educational builds.

  • Retail Version of LEGO Mindstorms EV3 w/ Software $315
    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 educational tutorials. Instead, it has 17 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 $40 Gyro sensor that is included in the Educational version, as the Retail builds do not use the Gyro sensor.

Read Books on LEGO Robotics
