  • Ev3 software and the upcoming macos catalina (10.15)

    The current version of the EV3 Lab software is not compatible with the upcoming update to macOS, called Catalina. We are therefore introducing a brand-new EV3 app in November 2019, called LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 Classroom. Based on the SPIKE app, EV3 Classroom will feature a coding language based on Scratch that we are confident will unleash the full potential of EV3 in the FIRST LEGO League program. The first release of EV3 Classroom will be in US English, followed by the other 15 EV3 languages in spring 2020.
    To continue to enjoy an uninterrupted EV3 experience and to avoid losing your programs, we strongly recommend that you do not update to Catalina until the end of the FIRST LEGO League season in July 2020. If you have already updated to the new OS, please contact Technical Consumer Service at to discuss how we can help you during this transition period.
    For further questions and support, we encourage you to reach out to Technical Consumer Service using the link above.

    I suspect there will be growing pains.

    The real question is how similar the experience will be to the new VexCode, which is also based on Scratch.
