The LEGO Mindstorms EV3 robot is powered by a small computer called a LEGO EV3 Intelligent Brick. Commonly called “the Brick”. The Brick runs on the Linux operating system, so advanced users can have more fun modifying their system. The body of the robot is constructed using plastic pieces that easily snap together. The robot can be told to move forward, backward or turn. There are additional sensors that will allow the robot to sense color or react based on pressure against a touch sensor. An infrared remote control can be used to control the robot. 

You will learn how to construct a robot and then program it to move.

The Nebraska Library Innovation Studios: Transforming Rural Communities project is supported in part by the Nebraska Library Commission, partnering with the University of Nebraska Lincoln Nebraska Innovation Studio, Nebraska Extension, and Regional Library Systems. The project is funded through a National Leadership Grant awarded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS grant #LG-95-17-0046-17).
