Take on the challenge to adapt a simple Lego EV3 robot to make it smarter by adding and coding sensors and motors.

Coding Smart begins with student exploration into Lego Ev3 sensors and motors to then build a simple Legobot. As students develop their knowledge of coding robotics, they are challenged to make their robot smarter by detecting colour, avoiding obstacles, or moving objects. Once their unique robot is designed, students use problem solving skills to complete mission challenges based on their ‘smart’ additions. Be impressed as your students apply essential STEM skills such as critical thinking, problem solving and collaboration to code a functional robot to make connections to real world applications.
