Today we are incredibly excited to announce the launch of MakeCode for LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3! This collaboration is the culmination of months of engineering, design and user testing work between the LEGO Education and Microsoft MakeCode teams.
The MakeCode team strives to make learning fun, so they’ve created some fun blocks for programming the screen on the LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 brick, including the ability to show images and moods on it. A great example is the “Love” mood, which will show hearts on the screen, turn the lights green, and play a tinkling sound effect.
We look forward to your feedback and we continue to look for innovative and supportive methods to help your students achieve their full potential.
How can I get started?
As you would expect from Microsoft and LEGO Education, we’ve provided tutorials, projects and code samples to help you get started using Microsoft MakeCode for LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3. Please visit makecode.MINDSTORMS.com and join us in helping the students of today create the world of tomorrow!
