SOFTWARE AND APPS
The LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 software and app works with Windows 7, 8 or 10, macOS, Chrome OS, iOS and Android. They can be downloaded for free from www.legoeducation.com/downloads and the App Store or Google Play Store. Students drag programming blocks onto a working space, link the blocks together and change variables in the blocks to create simple and complex programs. They send their program to the EV3 brick via Bluetooth or USB cable and watch the resulting action. The software can also be used for data logging, alongside the EV3 brick and sensors.
There is a built-in documenting tool so that students can record and save their experience for assessment purposes if required.
