What happens at the Lego Mindstorms Introduction to Programming EV3 Techcamp?

Working in teams of two, & sharing a Lego Mindstorms EV3 Robotics kit and a computer, children will be introduced to core computer programming logic and reasoning skills using a robotics engineering context. Each Techcamp contains a sequence of mini projects (plus one capstone challenge) organized around key robotics and programming concepts and all using Lego Mindstorms EV3 and good old teamwork!

Each project provides students with:
  • An introduction to a real-world robot and the context in which it operates
  • A challenge that the robot faces
  • A LEGO-scale version of the problem for students to solve with their robots
  • Step-by-step guided instruction that introduces key lesson concepts (e.g. Loops) by building simple programs that progress toward the challenge task
  • questions that give students instant feedback on whether they understood each step correctly, to aid in reflection and self-pacing
  • Semi-guided “Try It!” exploration activities that expose additional uses for and variants on each behavior
  • Semi-open-ended Mini-Challenges require students to use the skill they have just learned to solve a relevant small portion of the final challenge
  • The Techcamp Challenges based on the original robot’s problem, for students to solve in teams as an exercise and demonstration of their mastery of the concept

Why should I use the Lego Mindstorms Introduction to Programming EV3 Techcamp?

Lego Mindstorms Introduction to Programming EV3 Techcamp provides a structured sequence of programming activities in real-world project-based contexts. The projects are designed to get students thinking about the patterns and structure of not just robotics, but also programming and problem-solving more generally. By the end of the Techcamp, students should be better thinkers, not just coders.
