Whether you just opened your LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 kit today or you are a long-time fan and are trying to come up with new ideas for your school’s robotics club, we have the list for you! Check out these fantastically fun, creative ideas for LEGO® MINDSTORMS® robots that will get your kids thinking, creating and designing the ultimate new creations for your school.
1. A Digital Clock. This high-tech digital clock will keep your classroom running right on time. (Of course, your students will be so engaged that they won’t be checking the clock anyway.)
2. A Coffee-Fetching Robot. Imagine having your own robotic butler to fetch you a cup of Joe whenever you need one. Plus, we’re guessing some ingenious teacher out there could build a similar robot to do all sorts of things. Copy making robot, anyone
3. An Obstacle Sensing, Edge-finding Robot. This edge-sensing, obstacle-sensing robot is a lot of fun. But it also leads to a bunch of learning with easy takeaway lessons about speed, velocity and physics.
4. Dancing Robot. This guy will be a hit at the Homecoming dance, not to mention a great way to start the school day on a fun, upbeat foot.
5. Guitar-Playing Robot. We’re thinking you music teachers could do all sorts of fun (and educational) things with this guy.
6. Candy Machine. Take classroom rewards to a whole new level with this candy-machine, LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education robot all in one.
