This core set is optimized for classroom use and contains all you need to teach using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3. It enables students to build, program, and test their solutions based on real-life robotics technology. It contains the EV3 Intelligent Brick, a powerful small computer that makes it possible to control motors and collect sensor feedback. It also enables Bluetooth® and Wi-Fi communication as well as provides programming and data logging. Students are encouraged to brainstorm in order to find creative solutions to problems and then develop them through a process of selecting, building, testing, and evaluating. This is also an excellent way of getting students to talk to each other and cooperate as well as giving them hands-on experience with an array of sensors, motors, and intelligent units. Printed building instructions for the Robot Educator model are included in the set, and instructions for four additional models are included in the software. The set also comes in a sturdy plastic storage bin with a sorting tray for easy classroom use and organization. Software sold separately.
