What are LEGO robots?
Lego Mindstorms is a hardware and software structure which is produced by Lego for the development of programmable robots based on Lego building blocks.
What can a EV3 robot do?
Lego Mindstorms EV3 is a set that lets you build and program five starter robot models. A programmable power brick, plus servo motors and color, touch, and infrared sensors, help the robot move and communicate.
Who invented Lego Mindstorms?
You can build your own creation, and then, as Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen and Seymour Papert envisioned some 30 years ago, you can actually program it.
What programming language does Lego Mindstorms use?
The good news is that there are lots of replacement text-based languages for Mindstorms NXT, from Java to Lua (or, if you want to stick with visual programming, you can also use LabView, the professional-grade language that NXT-G is based on).
What age should you start robotics?
Advanced robotics programs allow children to make their own programs for their robots. Some kits allow toddlers as young as five years old to assemble their own robots. Middle school children are more inclined to working on more complex robotics kits since they have to work on programs using a computer.
Why is Lego Mindstorms so expensive?
That’s a big development cost, because LEGO has a lot of proprietary components. The EV3 comes with quite a few electronic components— the programmable brick, 2 large motors, 1 smaller motor, infrared sensor, color sensor, touch sensor, remote control, 7 wires, and a USB cable. That adds a lot to the cost.
What are the 4 steps in the robot educator process?
I used the following four steps — which is how I recommend teachers proceed with students.
- Step 1: Begin with the end in mind and know your hardware.
- Step 2: Build your robot.
- Step 3: Learn the functions of gears, motors, sensors and other components.
- Step 4: Learn to program your bot.

How do you get your robot to go backwards?
POSSIBLE SOLUTION: BUMP AND REVERSE
- Start the Program.
- Drive forward in a straight line at the desired speed.
- Wait for the Touch Sensor (simulating changing to reverse gear) to be “bumped”.
- Stop the motors.
- Wait for 1 second.
