DiscoveryCamp Mindstorms EV3 Education

People love to analyse, examine and develop tools that allow them to better understand the surrounding world. Interestingly, the same tools and principles can be used in factories to streamline production. Make use of your innate curiosity to create mechanisms and programs that will sort, transfer, detect, or count objects. Follow this series to learn about engineering solutions and science principles that lay the foundation for smart production systems.
Lessons available in monthly and annual subscriptions.

Discover how robotic solutions are actually used in the real world. Follow this industrial series to create robots and algorithms utilized in factories, workshops, or in life threatening emergencies. Moreover, this advanced series is a great introduction for robotics competitions. Materials for each exercise include:

  • extensive introduction illustrated with graphics and animations,
  • detailed instructions for building LEGO Mindstorms EV3 robot,
  • step-by-step programming guide,
  • access to additional teaching resources.

Exercises

ANEMOMETER

Wind is all around us and has significant influence on your everyday life, even if you rarely notice its impact. Learn what exactly the wind is and how to measure it with tools available on your desk: a robot and code.

BRIDGE LAYER

Overcome (almost) any gap with your pocket bridge layer! Once you build and program it, your friendly robot will approach the precipice, calmly set the bridge, then bravely venture onto the other side.

CONVEYOR

Rarely seen, yet essential in production. Conveyors are usually used to transfer objects to another part of the factory, but your conveyor is endless! Each time the ball rolls down, the robot moves it to the start.

FLIGHT SIMULATOR

Piloting an airplane is no simple task, but every future professional starts with the basics. Assemble your very own flight simulator, learn about centrifugal force and control flight altitude by means of code.

LAUNCHER

Out of all human inventions, the adventures of launchers might be among the most thrilling. Your task is to throw a ball with the right force, so that it falls directly into the box. Are you ready for some target practice?

MANIPULATOR

Pick up a box and move it to another place. Simple enough? Now make a robot do the same! Find out how complex human hand truly is and how to imitate its movement with the right construction and program.

MAZEBOT

Create an independent robot that will find its way out of every maze. Equipped with distance sensor, caterpillar tracks and advanced program, this clever machine will find the exit even in complete darkness!

MUSIC BOX

People and animals both enjoy music. Robots, however, can actually become a musical instrument themselves! Build this model to see how a music box works and program it to create simple melodies.

PIN COUNTER

Robots are tireless, capable of performing tasks that require constant focus. They are unmatched at counting objects in factories, or cars on roads. You can see such a robot in action yourself - just use bricks and code.

SORTING MACHINE

Want to spend your entire afternoon on sorting bricks? You don’t need to! Instead, you can build this impressive robotic sorter and program it to complete this boring task for you. After all, that’s why people invented machines in the first place.

TESTER

Inspired by human senses, built to be far superior. Testers come in dozens of types and sizes, and they all help people determine whether examined items meet particular physical requirements.

VEHICLE

Meet the inventions that literally moved the world: the wheel, the steam and combustion engines. Next, make a two-wheeled vehicle and program it to avoid obstacles. Finally, experiment with its code or construction.
