LEGO® Robotics
Discover the ultimate LEGO® challenge: Powerful LEGO MINDSTORMS® EV3! LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 gives you the power to create and command your own robotic LEGO creatures, vehicles, machines and inventions! By combining LEGO® elements with a programmable brick, motors and sensors, you can make your creations walk, talk, grab, think, shoot and do almost anything you can imagine! We will build things like a humanoid robot, a shooting scorpion, a slithering snake, a forklift, a race truck, an electric guitar, a walking dinosaur and many more! Each robot comes complete with its own unique features and a program that controls the robot’s behavior! With our KidzToPros LEGO Robotics program, you will discover the endless possibilities of LEGO and your imagination!
