  • Good Books on Building/Programming?

    Our official FLL season is over, but we will still meet to build and program to improve our knowledge. Any good suggestions on books that review ideal building/programming for FLL? We are aiming to improve basic knowledge on motors and sensors. Thanks!

    The best books on LEGO building I've seen are by Yoshihito Isogawa.

    For general FLL knowledge, the material on ev3lessons.com probably surpasses most of the FLL-specific books that are available.

      A few books I've found useful:
      https://www.amazon.com/LEGO-MINDSTOR...dp/1593275323/
      Great, overview of the EV3. Not specifically geared towards FLL but still useful in explaining how to work with the EV3, sensors, etc.

      https://www.amazon.com/LEGO-MINDSTOR...dp/1593275684/
      Great book on programming the EV3. When someone has a programming question I can't answer off the top of my head, this is my go-to resource. Sometimes when there is a question I can answer, I still go to the book, open to the section and hand it to the person with the question so they can read and learn on their own. Very understandable and helpful.

      Useful in giving ideas for various attachments. I use this one more as an inspiration guide rather than a how-to book.
