Vernier Engineering Projects with LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3

Vernier Engineering Projects with LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 contains 13 engineering challenges for use with the LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 Core Set and MINDSTORMS® EV3 Software (not compatible with the NXT robotics system).

This book is perfect to challenge upper middle school and high school students to build and program robots for testing batteries, locating “land mines”, automating plant watering, and more.

The sensors used in these challenges include the Dual-Range Force SensorHand DynamometerMagnetic Field SensorDifferential Voltage ProbeGas Pressure SensorpH SensorTemperature SensorUVB Sensor, and Soil Moisture Sensor.
