If you've ever doubted the entertainment and education value of toys, the LEGO EV3 Programming app demoed at SXSWedu 2015 would definitely change your mind. The LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 platform is designed for the classroom, aiming to make comprehension of learning material easy through robotics and hands-on tutorials. With this system, kids are taught key concepts in science, technology, math, engineering and computer science. Optimizing the flexibility, ease of use and intuitiveness of a tablet, the LEGO EV3 platform gives educators the power to introduce concepts in classes even as short as 45 minutes.
Coming soon to the iOS app store for tablets, the education system will be sold as part of the MINDSTORMS Education EV3 curriculum pack, which takes learning to the next level with other programming software for computer-based learning.
