FOCUS FOR THE SESSION

  • Running short, high-impact sessions with LEGO Mindstorms – including quick builds for maximum learning impact

- Moving Mindstorms away from instruction-led building

- Key builds to inspire students

  • An introduction to sensors – bringing Mindstorms to life with sensors and how to get the most out of them:

- Ultrasonic, Colour and Touch

- Gyro – its power and its challenges!

  • ‘Getting Messy with Mindstorms’ – Problem-solving with LEGO Education Mindstorms

  • Beyond the App – exploring features of the Desktop version of Mindstorms

Delegates can download and install the LEGO Mindstorms software at:

The purpose of the session is to get familiar with the resources in order to work with schools on LEGO Mindstorms projects.


NOTE: There are only 24 tickets available due to the number of LEGO kits that we hold. Please therefore only book if you can definitely make the training - as numbers are very restrictive.

We will also expect ALL Ambassadors that attend to sign up to ONE session to support the schools attending or to have lined up their own activity with a school of their choice.

We have several LEGO Mindstorms kits that can go out on loan to schools - STEM Ambassadors can support schools and borrow the kits as long as they record their activity and provide us with a short synopsis and photos of their activity!

Places are limited so please book now - refreshments will be provided
