need the gyro sensor and the gyro sensor block.) I have no use for the lesson plans and data logging info in
the $100 software package. I'd be happy to pay $25 - $35 for a CD or download of just the building instructions
and EV3-G programs for these models. Does LEGO or LEGO Education offer or plan to offer such a product?
Thanks for any info.

Not sure if this is what you are looking for http://www.us.lego.com/en-us/mindstorms/community/bi/
them for ideas for my NXT robots.
But at this time, I'm looking for the instructions for the new LEGO Education EV3 models,
such as Gyro Boy and Stairclimber. They look very interesting.
Might be worth a visit occasionally as the instructions may appear here if they are ever released by LEGO.

I haven't found the SW code.
the software code of the EDU kit models is surely copyright-protected
property. (And there are times for hobbyists to freely share ideas and parts.) In the past, LEGO has
been very good about selling individual parts. If I needed 25 of a particular part for a MOC, I was
able to call LEGO, and and order them. If they were prepackaged in 6 packs, yes, I would have to
buy 30, but I did not have to buy 25 of the 800 piece set #6789. I only paid for the parts I needed,
plus shipping and handling - a very reasonable arrangement.
What I would like to see is for LEGO to unbundle the EV3-G code for the robots from the classroom
material, e.g. lesson plans, data logging. The educational robots are very nice, and I suspect many
kids, TFOLs, and AFOLs, would enjoy building these robots at home, where they would not ever use
the lesson plans and data logging. And if these robots were built at home, I suspect it would result
in many orders to LEGO for additional sensors, wheels, motors, etc.
Is there a contact at LEGO where we can request the EV3 Educational software package be sold
unbundled? Thanks for any ideas.
