What is LEGO® Mindstorms™ EV3? Watch this short film to find out more about Milestones Museum's LEGO® school session, the curriculum links and learning outcomes, and to hear feedback from teachers and students who have participated in the session
Mindstorms™ at Milestones
Build a LEGO® robot, learn to program it then use it to solve the Space Challenges! A highly interactive STEM school session using the LEGO® Mindstorms™ EV3 system, perfect for curriculum visits and also STEM Clubs, targeted groups of students (e.g. Gifted and Talented), Enrichment or Activity Day, transition activities and cross-curricular learning.
Curriculum links include Science, Computing, Design & Technology and Maths as well as personal skills such as logical thinking, problem solving and teamwork.
“100% engaged, 100% of the time” (Winklebury Junior School)
The day is fully led and is split up into two parts, divided by a 30 minute lunch break. In the morning students build a robot, learn to use the software and practise programming the robot by completing several tasks. After lunch they use their new skills to attempt to solve the Space Challenges with their robot!
The LEGO Mindstorms EV3 kit is the latest in robotics technology – a programmable computer brick with attachable motors and sensors which can be built and programmed into an enormous variety of working robots.
LEGO Mindstorms EV3 is a highly interactive, challenge-based session designed to reflect the nature of the historical technology collections of Milestones Museum. Those who built and operated these machines in the past faced similar challenges, and also used the same skills to overcome design and function difficulties.
This workshop involves computer coding, mathematics problem-solving and design and engineering challenges using the robots.
£200 per class of up to 30 students. Bringing a smaller group for LEGO Mindstorms? We understand that school clubs or targeted groups may have fewer students, so please contact us for small group rates for this workshop only.
