Dancing Birds

Scjence Blog Steam Banner

Yesterday we held our first session of our three-week WeDo Robotics series for fourth and fifth graders. We had a small group, but everyone was very engaged and curious! We learned about pulleys, belt drive systems, and the transfer of electrical and mechanical energy. We built dancing birds with LEGOs and the kids figured out how to alter the speed and direction they spun both by changing their mechanics and changing their computer programs.

 

We’ve still got some space in this workshop, so if you’ve got a fourth or fifth grade student who’s interested, just let us know. You can call or stop in, or you can register through our online calendar.


And now, enjoy a few photos of the fun!

 

 Just getting started...
