Fun with LEGO EV3 Robotics for Absolute Beginners 

Download Free EV3 Tutorial pdf eBook

Course Outline
This is a robotics course for absolute beginners, assuming absolutely no prior technical background. It will take you gently through the tutorials shown on this page.
This course is structured as a “hands-on” “Learning-by-Doing” course, with new programming ideas introduced only when they are immediately needed by the robot. There is an absolute minimum of “talking-head” videos.
You will need to have access to a LEGO MindStorms EV3 set. The course is suitable for both the LEGO EV3 Education and the LEGO EV3 Home sets. The course shows you how to download a free EV3-G Editor from LEGO. The LEGO Editor is suitable for both Windows and Apple computers, but does not work for Linux, most tablets and smart phones. However the course videos can be played back on these devices, so that you can have the video tutorials available on a tablet right alongside your LEGO set as you go through this course.
Why pdf?
When we started out in 2006, we only had to consider desktops, all of which had fairly similar screen sizes. We used web pages with printable pdf documents for our courses, and many schools we assist still prefer these formats. These pdf documents have links to YouTube tutorial videos that  show you how to build and program EV3 robots. The video links are "live" when read on the screen, and can be typed in to a web browser if you are reading from a printed page. We hope you like this course, which we have mainly used with middle school students, and adults who are "young in heart"!
