Yesterday was the final session of this LEGO workshop for grades 2 & 3. We discussed how levers work to lift heavy weights, and the kids had the opportunity to make a bird machine utilizing levers and a tilt sensor.

In 2017 we’ll do more LEGO WeDo workshops for kids in grades 2 & 3, so keep an eye on our calendar! We didn’t have anyone on the waitlist for this session, so kids who’ve already done a workshop in 2016 can sign up to do another one in 2017!
And now, some photos and a couple videos to enjoy!
