The Lego MINDSTORMS EV3 Education kit

The Lego MINDSTORMS EV3 Education kit has been released in august 2013. It is the latest evolution of the Lego Mindstorms educational kit and is especially designed for education.

This kit contains everything you need for your students to build and program a robot. The smart Lego Mindstorms EV3 Brick (see below for more detailed specifications), various sensors enables your students to come up with creative solutions and an intuitive icon-based programming and data logging software.

Your students will learn the procedure how to develop, build, program and evaluate. This is also an opportunity to enhance the teamwork between your students. Additionally they could gather experience with their hands on simple but powerful sensors. The education kit comes in a sturdy plastic box and a sorting tray.

There are several key expertises your students will benefit from:

  • Design and programming of robots with motors sensors, gears, wheels and other technical components
  • Imagination how to build a 3D model out of a 2D plan
  • Construction, testing, debugging and imrprovement of designs
  • Pratical experience in the usage of mathematical skills, like the estimation of distance, time and speed.
  • Communication between each other in a scientific and technical language

    What is the difference between the standard and education versions of Lego Mindstorms EV3 ?

    See our guide with explanations about the differences between the standard and the education edition.

    Are there the same parts and sensors in the Lego Mindstorms EV3 Home Edition set and in the Lego Mindstorms EV3 Education set? What's the difference?

    No, there are some differences. See our guide for more details.

    One sensor doesn't work anymore

    Please contact our support team for further help.

    Can I program my Lego Mindstorms EV3 with C/C++, Python, Java, ROS, etc?

    Yes, it is possible. Some connectors and software exist so that users can program Lego Mindstorms with Java, C/C++, Python, Scratch and even ROS! Just follow this link.

    Are Lego Mindstorms NXT and EV3 parts compatible?

    Yes they are, to a certain extent. Please check this webpage for more info about NXT/EV3 compatibility.

    I want to put more digital sensors, how can I do it?

    Port Splitter for NXT Digital Sensors (SPLIT-Nx-v2). This simple device allows you to connect three compatible I2Cs to a single sensor port. It will work with one of four sensor ports on an EV3 or NXT.

    The ports of the SPLIT-Nx-v2 are not labeled, you can connect the brick and the sensors to any port (because the SPLIT-Nx-v2 sends its four ports together). You can find a long list of supported sensors on the product page.

    You can connect up to three I2C devices to an NXT or EV3 port. It only works with I2C compatible devices. It is supported in EV3-G, NXT-G, NXC, RobotC, JOS, LabVIEW, LVEE

    I want to put more engines, how can I do that?

    Multiplexer for NXT / EV3 engines (NXTMMX-v2). This product allows you to connect two motors and one sensor to a single sensor port.

    You can connect it to any of the four sensor ports on the NXT or EV3. The NXTMMX has a sensor port itself, so you can attach a sensor or other devices to mark. You can connect the NXT or EV3 motors to the motor port.

    Note that this will require an external power supply, the brick sensor port does not provide enough power to drive the motors. It can be used with NXT, EV3, EVShield and PiStorms. It is supported in EV3G, NXT-G, NXC, RobotC
