What`s in the Box?


The core set includes everything you need to start teaching STEM and computer science using the exciting LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 concept. The system includes the Intelligent EV3 Brick, a compact and powerful programmable computer that makes it possible to control motors and collect sensor feedback using the intuitive icon-based programming and data logging software that is delivered with the set. The set is delivered in a sturdy storage bin with a sorting tray, three servo Motors, five sensors (gyro, ultrasonic, colour and two touch), a rechargeable battery, connecting cables, and building instructions.

 
 


Scratch compatibility


Combining playful hands-on experiences with creative coding exploration, you and your students can easily connect LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 with the Scratch 3.0 release from MIT.

 
 

Micro Python Programming Language


The new EV3 MicroPython programming language, now standard for all EV3 secondary school content, is an optimised version of Python for micro-controllers and enables students to acquire skills directly applicable to real-world Python programming.

 
 


To program the EV3 with Python you have to previously install the MicroPython EV3 image on any microSD card and turn on your EV3 brick.
The reverse process of reverting to the standard LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 firmware is just as simple. We also provide you with complete documentation and a sample of the API code to get you started.



How to start?


  • Download and project the MicroPython EV3 image onto a microSD card.
  • Put your microSD into the SD card slot on the EV3 brick and turn it on.
  • Download, install and launch the free Visual Studio Code editor on your computer.
  • Install and activate the LEGO Education EV3 extension.
  • Connect the EV3 brick to your computer and start programming.




Minimum Specifications


  • Micro SDHC (min 4GB, max 32GB) with Application Performance Class A1.
  • Windows 10 or Mac OS computer.
  • Visual Studio Code version 1.31 or higher.
