Students apply physical science and math
principles to build effective robots.
Basics of Gears
Students progress through nine distinct missions
in which they investigate, observe, calculate, and
apply their knowledge to solve specific tasks.
Students apply and creatively adapt
programming and problem-solving skills to
design and build robots to solve seven very
different space challenges.

EDUCATION EV3 SPACE CURRICULUM
The EV3 Space Challenge Set & Activity Pack is comprised of three
learning mats, one challenge mat, a large number of LEGO elements,
and 30+ hours of activities in the following categories:
• Develop solutions, select, build,
test, and evaluate
• Learn to communicate, share ideas,
and work together

sensors, motors, and
Students explore, plan, and develop
around three fundamental challenges
NASA engineers and scientists are
working to solve – how to ensure humans
can survive in space, how humans can
create energy in space, and how robots
can help humans explore space.
Introduce your students to robotics with a very current and
real-world theme – traveling to and living on Mars! Students
will work as scientists and engineers as they progress though
this set of lessons, challenges, and projects that fully integrate
science, technology, engineering, and math concepts while
prompting creative problem solving, communication, and
This multimedia activity pack installs into the LEGO
MINDSTORMS EV3 Software and is accessible from the lobby
for an integrated learning and programming experience.
