Meet the new EV3 Robotics system from Lego! In this workshop we will explore the features of the EV3 robotics system using Lego’s drag and drop programming system. The EV3 features a faster processor with more memory, Bluetooth, and sensors. We will build the tank-bot and program the robot to move through a course and use the color sensor to track and avoid obstacles.
