The very first robot that we build in a class, usually.
Building instructions for a robot for the World Robotics Olympiad Sputnik competition. This is the light version without the lift at the top.
Building instructions for a LEGO EV3 Robo-tank. The construction is incredibly simple, with an upright Brick, which makes it perfectly suitable for lessons with students.
These are building instructions for an attachment accomplishing the FIRST LEGO League 2017-2018 Slingshot mission. The based of the robot is LEGO Box Robot Three With Large Wheels and Thee light sensors and one Gyro
There is a lot of physics and math involved when learning with LEGO Mindstorms EV3 robots. It is generally "difficult" to include them directly during classes because students are coming for "something funnier" and at the same time, they could be of different ages. But Inertia is a pretty common topic that is quite easy to introduce to students, especially with a robot.
The robot moves and stops. What will happen with the cargo when the robot stops? Naturally, the cargo will continue moving and this is dangerous. For how long, what would be the energy? All these are things that could be discussed with this robot.
The robot is not completely finished because you have to finish it and decide on the wheels to be used.
It's fast. It's on two wheels. It's a motorcycle. And this one is built from LEGO Mindstorms EV3 sets with the use of one additional Medium Motor. If you have two medium motors, great. If you don't have you can build the Handlebar - Chopper Motorcycle built with LEGO Mindstorms EV3, because it uses one large and one medium motor that are available in any EV3 set.
Currently, the motorcycle has no sensors. It's more of an exercise in construction, but if you attach sensors and think of a way to attach them send us a picture.
Join the course A robot a "day" keeps the questions awake where we will further discuss the motors, how to build them and what tasks to accomplish with them.
You can also download the program from here.
Space stations allow us to learn about and even practice living in space, but improved technology and new international partners require modules to be easily interchangeable.
The robot needs to remove and insert modules among the habitation hub’s portholes.

Building instructions for a LEGO EV3 steering car. We use two large motors, so that the rear wheels will be driven independently by a separate motor. For your convinience, you can use the EV3-G MyBlock for moving the Boomer.
Building instructions for a Wall-E like robot. The robot is on treads, driven by two Large EV3 motors. Has two static hands and an ultrasonic sensor on top.
Building instructions for an EV3 LEGO Mindstorms Dump Truck. The back of the truck can be tilted through controlling the medium EV3 motor so that the load can be dumped at a desired location. Also, the robot has a color sensor to determine the type of load it is carrying.
Accomplish three FIRST LEGO League missions at once. This is an interesting Large multi-purpose FLL attachment for a box robot that could be used to accomplish a number of missions with a single exit of the field base.
The goal of these building instructions is to build a LEGO Mindstorms EV3 robot without wheels. You should then decide on your own how exactly to add the wheel. Which wheels would you use at the front? How are you going to build the third wheel? Here are some recommendations on building the third wheel - 1,2,3,4
The CubeHunter uses the ultrasonic sensor to detect a ball or cube. Next, the robot catches it and reads the colour of the object using the EV3 colour sensor. The building instructions are suitable for classes with students and if you are working alone at home.
Instructions for a simple Crane construction built from LEGO Mindstorms EV3 set. In order to operate properly, you need to add weight at the back of the jib. The most interesting part of the robot is the design of its hand, so examine it closely.
Building instructions for the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 robot used for accomplishing WRO 2014 mission. It is the full robot with the lift at the top
Building instructions for a LEGO Truck. The robot is presented as an Ammo Truck but it can be used for transporting various other objects, too. The construction has a rear drive with each of the rear wheels driven by a Large Lego Motor. The front wheels steer using a Medium Lego Motor. The Brick is placed at the front of the construction which gives the opportunity to easily attach different sensors, based on the task.
This robot is part of the category of robots called animals. After following the building instructions you would have a frog that could jump. Of course, the jump depends on the surface and the friction between the robot and the ground... quite complex physics involved. But if you program it to move forward it will try to jump and it is your job to try to make it jump higher.
You could try to extend some of the legs, for example.
Building instructions for a simple chain tread machine. The robot is actually a simplified version of the Freedom Folk Race tank. All of the ultrasonic sensors are stripped away and the robot can be used for multiple different tasks. The construction is appealing to students and simple enough to be included in a class.
This is a simple LEGO EV3 Mindstorms Robot that can collect items within itself.
Following the Spy Bot, we have this new Spy Vehicle. Yes, yes it is using an ultrasonic sensor.
The building instructions are for a robot base that looks like a car but is not exactly a car and has a strange shape. Just like spy vehicles - a car, but not only a car and not just a car.
