Youth use LEGO Toolkit to build robotsThe LEGO® Mindstorms EV3 Toolkit contains five full sets of the LEGO® Education EV3 “Core Set.”  Our LEGO® toolkit contains enough resources for 10 youth participants, recommended for ages 10+.

Project Details

Each set contains the Programmable Brick and 540 additional pieces, including sensors.

The EV3 Brick serves as the control center and power station for your robot, with:

  • 4 Input ports: 1, 2, 3, 4 (to connect sensors to EV3 Brick)
  • 4 Output ports: A, B, C, D (to connect motors to EV3 Brick)
  • 1 Mini USB PC port (to connect EV3 brick to computer)
  • USB host port (to add Wi-Fi dongle and do “Daisy chaining”)
  • Micro SD Card port (to increase available memory for EV3 Brick)
  • Built-in speaker

The user guide and software activation code are also included.
