Get started with robotics. Learn the basics of building and controlling a robot in a fun and interactive class. Each session the students will meet virtually for 90 minutes and will have a follow up "homework" assignment to try out before the next class. Students will do both mechanical problem solving to design their robots and programming to control their robot.


  • Build a robot around the EV3 Lego Robotics model
  • Learn how to do basic programming 
  • Learn to navigate the robot around obstacles 
  • Learn how to use and program the different sensors (light sensor, touch sensor, IR sensor, gyroscope)


  • Students must have their own Lego Mindstorms EV3 kit (either the Home or Educational kit is fine. The link to purchase one:
  • Students will need to run the Lego Mindstorms Education software on a Windows or MacOS computer. 

*Note the Lego Mindstorms software is not compatible with the latest MacOS 10.15 Catalina.

Students will need to have access to a computer during class hours that has both a camera and a microphone in order to meet virtually with their instructor and classmates over Zoom.
