Want to see for yourself what you can do with the robots at home? All the software we use is freely available and can be downloaded here.

Lego Mindstorms EV3

You can download the official Lego Mindstorms EV3 software from here. This is what we use to program the EV3 robots and demonstrate to kids.

The committee has a copy of the older Lego Mindstorms NXT software (on disk) if you require it, just ask one of us.

National Instruments Labview

You can also program the Mindstorm robots using National Instruments Labview. You can download this program for free using an educational license if you are a student at the University of Southampton from https://www.software.soton.ac.uk/
