Post-Camp Info: LEGO Robotics

Thank you for joining us for a wonderful week in our LEGO Robotics camp. If you are interested in LEGO robotics and want some educational resources, you are in luck. Below is information about how to purchase the equipment we use in camp.

LEGO Mindstorms EV3 Robotics Kits

There are two versions of the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 robotics kit, a retail version and an educational version. In our LEGO Robotics camp, we use the educational version that has a nice tote with dividers for all the LEGO parts. The retail version comes in a cardboard box like other LEGO kits.

 
  • LEGO Mindstorm EV3 Core Set educational version is going up in value. The cost as of this writing is $650.
    This educational version comes in a nice plastic tote that keeps the pieces organized with software, builds, and tutorials. The educational version is meant for those that want to learn what each piece of the robotics kit does. Consequently, 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.

Though we didn’t use it at camp, your student might like trying to program their EV3 robot using block coding from Microsoft called MakeCode. It is free on the Makecode Mindstorm website, but requires access to the internet.
