  • True Or False? – Separating Science Fiction From Science Fact

EV3 kits are about more than just programming. Here’s how you can use them in a science lesson to test whether the following statements are grounded in reality or mere myths…

True or False?

A pencil can draw a 35 mile long line

A piece of bread always lands butter side down

A small object dropped by one person cannot be caught by another

Why not bust other myths in your classroom?
