Instruction Guide: EV3 - Parallel Beam Sychronization

Printer-friendly version

This lesson has two resources.

The primary instructional materials are the PowerPoint and EV3 Code files from EV3Lessons.

The PowerPoint contains all the information needed for the lesson.  The corresponding EV3 Code file includes all four examples of synchronization. The EV3 Code is included as screen shots. Sometimes, additional helpful tips are included the PowerPoint.  Students should use both materials

  1. Students should then use the PowerPoint file along with the EV3 code file.
  2. It is important that students read the comments.
  3. Look at all four ways to make sure the parallel beams have finished.

Provide a challenge for students that requires two tasks to be performed at the same time and both completed before moving to a subsequent task.
