The things that you will be able to do with your EV3 robot by the end of this course are:
Freely move your robot towards desired target;
Avoid obstacles on the path of your robot using sensors;
Follow lines of any shape;
Detecting and picking up objects of any kind;
The course contains a number of sections with specific examples and tasks on how you could improve your FLL robot game in order to achieve more points. It is designed mostly for after season teams that would like to prepare for next year, but could also work for teams that are currently working on their competition robots.
This course is currently being developed. Sections up to position 9 (without 4) could be used. The rest will be released soon.
Designed to get students started with VEX EDR and RobotC. The robotics set is not very easy to use and offers its challenges. In the course we take a step-by-step approach to moving, turning and using sensors. A big part of the course is about programming and using the RobotC software for the Cortext controller.
This course is still under development and constantly change and extended.
Robotics is great. Mindstorms are great. But for a student to take the next step he or she needs to take a step back, learn what's 'below' and from there discover what would be 'above'.
So we, the content creators at FLLCasts, in order to teach the world of electronics and prepare the next generation of creators from the youngest age, by presenting knowledge, asking questions and searching for the answers of these questions, are building this course for basic electronics with Arduino, that we call "Starting with Electronics and Arduino".
Videos for this course are still being released and the course should be completely in 2017!
After the first box robot course and its enourmous success, we decided to build a second box robot. This time with fewer parts and with only three motors. The EV3 set comes with one medium motor and this robot will be easier for new teams. It is also lighter and more simple. Take the course and learn the ideas that we have in mind in simplifying a robot. Use this course with students and try to experiment to make the attachments and construction even simpler.
Videos for the course are still being produced!
Robotics competitions with LEGO Mindstorms robots are very popular. One of the more popular types of robot constructions that are build for such competitions are the so-called "Box Robots". In this course we are gathering a series of videos on this box robots along with building instructions and recommendations of improvements.
This course if used by teams, mentors and students to structure the preparation for the Robotics Game of the FIRST LEGO League Robotics Competitions. One thing that is common each year at FLL is that experience matters a lot. Our goal with this course is to quickly bring new teams up to speed with experienced teams and to share some new tricks, patterns, constructions with the more experienced teams.
This course is designed for classes of students, teams and mentors that are new to LEGO Mindstorms EV3 robots and would like to start using them to learn, in classes or at competitions. It is quite different from previously build resources at FLLCasts because it makes no assumption on any previous knowledge and tries to introduce everything step-by-step.
