- Thanks for watching this course. I hope you had fun learning about the Mindstorms EV3 kit, and are excited to start programming your own LEGO robots. As you venture forth to build your next amazing creation, remember, you can always break down a complex program into smaller, simpler pieces. I encourage you to build your programs up slowly, expanding on the Exercise Files, and testing each step along the way. It'll make troubleshooting a lot easier as you tackle the problem in incremental pieces. You'll end up with a complex, fully working robot in no time.
(robot chattering) Thanks again for watching, and happy building.
Learn how to unpack the hardware, connect to the programming interface, run prebuilt programs, and control the motors and sensors. Chapter 6, "Adding Flow to a Program," covers advanced programming topics such as transferring data between blocks, using variables to store temporary data, programming conditional logic, and looping actions to run again and again. By the end of the course, you'll have the skills to bring your own robotic creations to life.
