4. Building Your First Bots

One of the fantastic things about the EV3 is that great instructions are already available for building all sorts of robots. This chapter looks at the currently available instructions for the LEGO MINDSTORMS home edition set, and Chapter 5, “Building the LEGO Education Bots,” explores the instructions available for the LEGO Education set.

You can use this chapter as a reference to see whether you want to try a project, or you could challenge yourself to build along. On top of building along, you can program along. You can choose to download and use the finished EV3 programs as is, or you can follow the mission instructions and build the programs yourself as you go.
