Teaching with LEGO Mindstorms EV3. By Barbara Bratzel, Foreword by Chris Rogers.
STEM by Design contains a full range of classroom-tested activities for using the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 Education Set. The book includes introductory lessons, programming tutorials, STEM connections, data-logging labs, and creative projects, plus tips on running an effective LEGO robotics classroom. The activities are designed to encourage creative problem solving and critical thinking. Teacher notes and ready-to-use handouts are included for every activity. The Mindstorms EV3 is a valuable educational tool for STEM classrooms. STEM by Design helps teachers and others realize its full potential.
Preface by Barbara Rogers:
A couple of months ago, one of my students recounted a conversation she had had with an admissions counselor at a school interview. She was telling the counselor about her science class, when the woman started asking her about specific robotics projects from the class—have you built music boxes yet? Cars without wheels? Robotic snails? was mystified. Who was this admissions counselor? An ex-student of mine? A past parent? How did she know about the class? It turns out that the counselor had no connection with my school. Instead, she had heard so much about the robotics class from students at interviews over the years that she was familiar with many of the projects we did.
That story made my day. I want to get kids fired up about STEM—and robotics and engineering design are powerful tools for doing that. Building something that actually works or writing a program that actually runs is exciting—and empowering. topics have been much in the news of late—the growing number of jobs in STEM fields, the dearth of women and people of color in STEM fields, the inclusion of engineering in the Next Generation Science Standards, the poor showings on tests of technological literacy among Americans young and old, the debate over whether every student should learn to code. Though people argue about the details, there is an emerging consensus that STEM education is vital—and lacking.
Robotics and engineering are great vehicles for teaching STEM concepts in an integrated way. They teach important skills as well: critical thinking, creative problem solving, collaboration, and communication. Working on projects shows kids that there is no single correct answer; that failure can be an important way of gaining knowledge; that perseverance, resilience, and flexibility, as well as technical knowledge, are vital to success. This book is full of projects, large and small. Projects to teach programming. Projects to teach math and physics concepts. Projects to teach engineering design. Projects to teach kids to think creatively and work together to solve problems. My hope is that as the students do these projects, they will gain STEM knowledge, problem-solving skills—and enthusiasm.
