This powerful, easy to learn, easy to use software for programming and data logging is based on National Instruments LabVIEW[TM].
This is the industry-leading graphical system design software used by scientists and engineers worldwide. It is optimized for classroom use and follows the very latest developments in intuitive software design and gives is really student-friendly.
Programming with the EV3 Software is done by dragging and dropping icons into a line in order to form commands. The language's graphical interface lets students build simple programs, and then easily and intuitively build on their skills until they are developing complex algorithms.
The software' s data logging feature is a powerful science tool for carrying out experiments. It is easy to collect, view, analyze and manipulate data from sensors and see the data in interactive graphs. Its unique feature, known as graph programming, makes experiments come alive as students can set threshold values for sensors, such as making a sound when a certain temperature is detected by the sensor.
The in-built content editor enables teachers to customize the curriculum and create their own lessons. It enables students to capture their work directly inside the content creating their own digital workbook, making classroom management and assessment easier.
The software comes with the robot educator learning tool that summarizes what the LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education software is about. It includes 48 step-by-step multimedia tutorials designed to help educators and students master basic and advanced programming as well as hardware and data logging functions. Just add the core set and you're ready to go!
