Materials List: Master Driver

Each group needs:


Note: This activity can also be conducted with the older (and no longer sold) LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT set instead of EV3; see below for those supplies:

  • computer loaded with the NXT 2.1 software

To share with the class:

  • Master Driver Presentation, a Microsoft® PowerPoint® file
  • computer and projector, to show the presentation
  • smooth floor space (such as tiled, not carpeted floor) to use as a track, with a start line and a finish line; make the track ~4 feet (~122 cm) long and ~ 2 feet wide (~30.5 cm)
  • tape, to mark the track on the floor
  • measuring tape, to position parallel to the 4-foot floor track, for measuring robot distance to finish line; tape down a flexible or rigid tape measure
  • 15-25 toy figures, such as LEGO people or any other available small figurines or action figures, to line up across the entire finish line; it is recommended that the teacher and students bring in available figures from home, but if needed, the LEGO DUPLO Community People Set includes 20 adult figures at
