It’s just amazing the multiple incredible things you can do with a robot. Our parents’ and grandparents’ generation, couldn’t even think of the great possibilities we and our children have today: Building robots at school, or even at home.
In this opportunity, we would like to show you some of the most amazing projects done with the LEGO Mindstorms EV3. The robot builders we introduce to you today are extremely talented and creative.
When seeing projects like these, we realize how accurate are the researches that say that robotics and STEM help with critical thinking, problem-solving, and creativity.
We invite you to enjoy and to appreciate the effort of these talented kids and teens, who made with their own hands and minds these outstanding projects using their LEGO Mindstorms EV3 Robotics kit.
