LEGO Education We Do
We started working with LEGO Education WeDo. The Robotics Construction set provides a kid-friendly approach that makes learning fun, inspiring, and engaging. It combines the LEGO bricks with one motor, two sensors, and a hub that connects the model to the computer, then drag-and-drop visual programming software brings the model to life. We learn about physics, engineering, programming and develop motor and cognitive skills through robot building, all as they have fun with LEGO bricks.
Here are our first six builds:
Plants and Pollinators
Modeled the relationship between a pollinator and flower during the reproduction phase.
Introduces building and coding using the Motion Sensor.
Introduces building and coding using the Light Block.
Introduces building and coding using the Motor Power Block to make the motor turn at different speeds.
Introduces building and coding using the motor further, making it turn for a set amount of time and then change direction.
Milo, The Science Rover
Discover ways that scientists and engineers can use rovers to explore places where humans cannot go.
