Sparking creativity with LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 and Microsoft MakeCode
At Sri UCSI Springhill, students become independent learners, developing critical thinking, growing ideas, and building their creations through teamwork and communication. By combining their design and coding skills, they can create innovative solutions to real-world problems with the use of LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3.
EV3 Classroom is the essential companion app for the LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 Core Set (45544). Bringing best-in-class STEM and robotics learning to secondary students, EV3 Classroom enables them to design and code programmable robots to solve complex real-life problems.
EV3 Classroom features a coding language based on Scratch, the most widely used and popular graphical programming language in teaching. The intuitive, drag-and-drop coding interface means that students can learn to program complex programs in no time.
EV3 Classroom is supported by a comprehensive curriculum of teaching units, including Getting Started, Robot Trainer, Engineering Lab and Space Challenge. With around 25 hours of targeted learning, the EV3 Classroom curriculum teaches students the essential 21st-century skills they need to compete in today’s technologically infused world, including STEM, Engineering, Computer Science and Robotics.
EV3 Classroom is available for most types of devices and operating systems used in today’s teaching environments. Whether it is a Mac, iPad, Android tablet, Chromebook or a Windows 10 desktop/touch device, EV3 Classroom delivers the same experience, features and content across all devices.
Lifelong learning starts with confidence, and we are not just talking about students. For many teachers, confidence is an essential part of delivering engaging and inspiring EV3 Classroom lessons. We have therefore created a full range of STEM/programming teaching materials and online lesson plans that give teachers everything they need to nail their lessons.
