With its colorful, block-based interface, The LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 programming language is designed to allow anyone to program intelligent robots, but its powerful features can be intimidating at first. The Art of LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 Programming is a full-color, beginner-friendly guide designed to bridge that gap. Inside, you’ll discover how to combine core EV3 elements like blocks, data wires, files, and variables to create sophisticated programs. You’ll also learn good programming practices, memory management, and helpful debugging strategies—general skills that will be relevant to programming in any language. All of the book’s programs work with one general-purpose test robot that you’ll build early on. As you follow along, you’ll program your robot to: * React to different environments and respond to commands * Follow a wall to navigate a maze * Display drawings that you input with dials, sensors, and data wires on the EV3 screen * Play a Simon Says–style game that uses arrays to save your high score * Follow a line using a PID-type controller like the ones in real industrial systems The Art of LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 Programming covers both the Home and Education Editions of the EV3 set, making it perfect for kids, parents, and teachers alike. Whether your robotics lab is the living room or the classroom, this is the complete guide to EV3 programming that you’ve been waiting for.

Wouldn't it be nice if there was a golden ticket to STEM education? Something that incorporated science, technology, math, and the most elusive of all, engineering? What if it could be applied as part of a lesson, as a class on its own, or as an after-school club? Sound too good to be true? It's not. The golden ticket is robotics. It's hard to find a better way to teach STEM education. And the best part is it's hands on, multidisciplinary, collaborative, an authentic learning experience, and engaging! LEGO Robotics has exploded in popularity, but despite the obvious benefits, many educators are hesitant to begin a program in their school because it seems challenging. Mark Gura has written this book to encourage you to give robotics a try. Although starting a robotics program may seem like a daunting task, Gura brings together the information you need and presents it in a manageable, organized way so that you learn what LEGO Robotics is, what student activities look like, how to begin, how to manage a class, how robotics relate to standards, and much more. Gura concludes with more than a dozen interviews with educators, trainers, and even a student, so you can receive first-hand advice and recommendations. After reading this book you will be on your way to introducing your students to LEGO Robotics activities and competitions! Features: A comprehensive introduction to LEGO Robotics, from a description of the materials to advice on classroom setup and curricular integration; recommendations for implementing LEGO Robotics--as a FIRST LEGO League team, an extracurricular club, or a class; an appendix with more than 100 resources including links to materials, information on getting started, videos, and more
