We kicked off our 2017 LEGO science programming with a two-week LEGO WeDo Robotics workshop for kids in grades 2 & 3.
We briefly discussed simple machines and how they would be incorporated into the machines we’d be making. We also covered the basics of computer programming and how to use the LEGO software. Then, in pairs, kids chose which LEGO machines they wanted to build and program.
Since kids were able to choose their own projects, we got to see a much wider variety of creations! Here’s a collection of photos from both sessions!
The group gets started!
We're starting to get familiar with the LEGO software.
Building is underway!
This team chose to make the spinning top. During our second workshop, we watched a video about using this top in microgravity on the International Space Station!
This pair was also working on the spinning top!
This team made a pair of legs that kicked a "soccer ball" (made of aluminum foil).
