Contains resources for LEGO Mindstorms competitions. There are many LEGO competitions using EV3, NXT and RCX robots. These competitions have some similarities, but could be quite different in general. Most popular are of course FIRST LEGO League and World Robotics Olympiad.
Categories group many Tutorials, Courses, Playlists and Materials under a common topic.
Learn how to build LEGO robots and win the FIRST LEGO League competition.
Using LEGO Mindstorms EV3 and NXT robotics kits we give curriculum ideas, share professional experience and teach students to think and develop as engineers. The goal of this category is to group specific examples from specific missions.
Specific solutions to specific problem from World Robotics Olympiad. The Olympiad has different categories and levels and we gather all the robotics solutions in this category
Here we collect resources that are common for most LEGO Mindstorms robotics competitions. The resources here could be used for FLL, WRO, general line following, sumo and many more.
Separate the robot construction on body - body and attachments. Attachments should be small, light and most importantly for winning the competitions they should be pinless. In this category we group tutorials, courses and materials for different attachments that have proved to be useful.
The LEGO Mindstorms robots incude a Gyro sensor. Gyros are always interesting. Always funny and most of all - usefull. Yes, it is sometimes difficult so in this category we collect resources connected with Gyro sensor.
Touched, Released, Bumped. These are the basic three states of the LEGO Mindstorms touch sensors both in EV3 and NXT versions of the robots.
With the use of ultrasound the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 & NXT Ultrasonic sensors could detect the distance to an object. You can use it in many different ways most of them very interesting and fun. Some of them a little more challenging, but rewarding.
NXT version of the LEGO Mindstorms robots have a sound sensor. It can detect ... sound. You can make the robot do things when you clap, move, or just when you are silent.
How to express your ideas with a program language. Your instructions to the robot. Humans are also have programs - it is our DNA. The DNA of the robots are the programming instructions that we give.
"I came to browse the Internet and build robots. And I am done browsing the Internet". Many different approaches, principles and directions to constructing robots with detailed building instructions and pictures.
We try to explain some basic laws of Physics with these resources. Sometimes there are calculations, but we try to keep it visual and to move step by step.

Every teacher/instructor can conduct classes with students using these resources. You need to motivate and organize the students. We provide the technical theory, tasks, instructions, programs and everything needed.
Tutorials and lessons using Arduino Electronics Kit. Programming with a C-style language, using electronic elements, different physics around current, voltage, resistance.
Robotics tutorials connected with the VEX robotics sets. Both VEX EDR and VEX IQ. The sets are a little more complicated that the LEGO sets and offer many opportunities for new STEM challenges and for new more integrated approaches to learning STEM.
Resources for preparing for the FIRST Technical Challenge (FTC) competition. Most of the resources are about Tetrix and Matrix sets.
This is a category only with mobile robots bases that you could directly build and use for competitions, classes or learning at home.
