SWBAT complete and post all past assignments

Students will learn about the Lego EV3 robots by watching several tutorial videos about programming them


  1. To begin the Lego EV3 challenges please watch only the first three tutorial videos on this site if you have not already. I created them to provide you with the information you need for the first challenge. Click here for the page with the videos.
  2. When you are done you may:
    1. Get together with a partner
    2. Get a Lego EV3 Challenges worksheet and fill out the top part
    3. Take a robot from the cabinet
    4. Try to program it for the first challenge
  3. Note: if you run into problems check to see who else in the class is familiar with Lego EV3 robots. There is also a page on this blog you can check called Lego Robot Problems & Solutions. Be sure to check that out.
  4. If I am not able to check your robot when you finish a challenge, you should begin working on the next challenge.
