Lego Mindstorms Education Ev3
We were introduced to these kits while attending the Feilte conference.
Our STEAM room already has 8 of the Lego We.Do 2.0 kits and the children are all familiar with the kits. However, we wanted to challenge the children even more and so we now have the more advanced version, Lego MindStorm Education Ev3.
This set contains everything you need to start teaching STEAM and computer science using the exciting LEGO mindstorms concept. It offers full teacher support, including STEAM and computing teaching materials, and a comprehensive eLearning program.
The children have already started building their own bots and programming them to carry out a number of tasks. We look forward to exploring the hundreds of builds that can be done with this kit.
Lego Education; Simple and Powered Machines Kit
This kit is designed to help the children understand machines and mechanisms. It links what they are learning about Science in the classroom with what they are doing in the STEAM room. After learning about forces, levers and pulleys in the classroom the children from 3rd class built their own one with this kit.
