After School Beginner EV3 Robotics

The students in the After School Beginner EV3 Robotics class have had lessons in Robotics to understand robots, uses of robots, and robotic attributes. They have completed the inventory process, which taught them organizational skills, the language and use of the EV3 parts, and how to work as a collaborative team. These skills have been essential for building their educator robots. The educator robots will be used for the programming lessons and challenges, which will continue throughout the year.
