The Colour Sensor from LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education is quite incredible! As the name would suggest, the Colour Sensor can distinguish between different colours. It also has 3 different modes: colour mode, reflected light mode and ambient light mode. Pupils can program the 3 different modes to acquire data that can then be used to control the movement of a robotic model.
The LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 Colour Sensor is an added accessory that can be used in conjunction with other LEGO Education programming resources such as the LEGO Intelligent Brick (not included).
•Teach scientific investigations using the Colour Sensor. For example, investigate the percentage of reflected light on different coloured surfaces and use the data set to explain reflection and refraction.
• Set creative challenges for students involving the Colour Sensor. Can students program their robotic models to navigate a maze using coloured squares as the trigger for the correct turn? Can they create a robotic model that will sort counters by colour into containers?
• Develop problem-solving skills and expose students to real-world engineering experiences using the LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 Colour Sensor.
