My Students

The students in our Akibots robotics team have shown interest and volunteered to be on our new First Lego League team at Aki Kurose Middle School. They are current 6th and 7th graders, and they have been strengthening their skills with Legos, but I think they are fairly new at building an EV3 Lego Mindstorms robot. If they choose I want to give them this opportunity.

My Project

I would like my Robotics team students who would like a special challenge to continue practicing their Lego-building skills by building a Lego EV3 Mindstorms robot. Our Akibots have currently been building Lego kits that I have sent to them in the mail. I have just received 6 new Lego EV3 Mindstorms robot kits, but those kits do not come with transformer charging cords. Therefore, after the EV3 brick (computer brain of the robot) in each kit discharges from use they will be disabled until charged again. We need to buy some transformer charging cords.
