The following exercises were created for teachers and students involved in the Art of Making module. With help of these exercises, students will learn how to design, build and program LEGO robots to make them perform specific tasks, focused mainly around art. During the lessons students will familiarize themselves with various STEM related topics, such as: sensors, gear transmission, belt transmission, worm drive, differential drive, counterweight, center of gravity, sequence, algorithm, loop, conditional statement, variable, etc.
The course consists of 4 guided projects (Spirograph, Line follower, Drawer, Plotter) with detailed, step-by-step building and programming instructions and 1 open project (Robotic arm) where students design, build and program a robot themselves and test its operation in a classroom competition.
Each project is planned for 2 to 3 lessons. If you need more guidance, download our Beginner's Guide to Mindstorms EV3.
Materials available in English, Polish, Dutch, Lithuanian and Latvian.
Access to 5 comprehensive robotics exercises covering 12 lessons lasting 45 min. each, designed to inspire and teach. Materials for every exercise include:
The Art of Making is one of four modules created for the project funded by European Commission. Module author: Aleksandra Syrocka Module collaborators: Katarzyna Gliniecka, Dominika Skrzypek
