Level 1: LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 (Ages 9-17)

Students in the 9 to 17 age group can start off with theLEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 program which utilizes theLEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 educational kits and acts as an introduction to robotics and programming! During our sessions students will have the opportunity to go beyond the classroom and exercise their skillset in an atmosphere of creativity and teamwork!


LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 provides an introduction to robotics for students with no programming background using theLEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 educational kits. Students will construct, program and control robots through investigative and exploration activities. Additionally, they will be encouraged to seek information and their research activities will expose them to the engineering process. They will be introduced to concepts such as coding, looping, decision making and flow control as they utilize the visual drag and drop programming interface. Students will discover the projects that offer challenging designs and levels of complexity.
