This site offers lots of resources for teachers, see what is included below:

  • COMPUTER SCIENCE. Programming for real. Intuitive, simple icon-based programming language and tools that encourages solutions design using algorithmic problem solving.
    Example: Define an algorithm to measure and control behaviour and process.
  • SCIENCE.  Learning by doing. Support classroom teaching by using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 to collect real-time data to verify a hypothesis.
    Example: Carry out experiments designed to determine melting points – collect data samples with the temperature sensor and track and plot the results using the intuitive graphing environment.
  • TECHNOLOGY.  Actively engage students. Explore real-life application of technology to make analogies, identify relationships, predict outcome, analyze data and draw conclusions.
    Example: Explore design and functionality by building and programming the LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 to carry out controlled actions.
  • ENGINEERING. From idea to working prototype. Engage your students in practical, open-ended engineering challenges and open-ended problem solving.
    Example: Carry out a design process, from brief through testing and analysis to creating functional prototypes that can be easily modified to achieve design goals.
  • MATHEMATICS.  Bringing numbers alive. LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 is an ideal way to explore mathematical problems for real, making abstract concepts tangible and concrete.
    Example: Calculate the wheel circumference of your robot. Then program the robot to move a specific distance using the rotation sensor feedback multiplied by the circumference.

March 2019

Our terrific featured theme for March was ‘Health and Healthy Living’. I think that we would all agree that staying healthy will help us to feel better about ourselves and assist us in being more physically active and stronger.

In order for us to stay healthy, in addition to following any medical advice or care given to us, we need to:

  • eat healthy foods and drink plenty of water;
  • do lots of exercise and get enough sleep;
  • keep ourselves clean and pay attention to our personal hygiene.

We have over 50 superb resources that help support this really important topic - they comprise of a mixture of: information, facts, research, hands-on activities, illustrations, games and video clips, as well as some detailed planning - each of which will successfully help to reinforce this life-supporting topic.
