Lego WeDo Robotics (4 to 8 years)

Learn robotics with LEGO Education WeDo. Build snapping alligators, race cars, and spinning robots, then program them with the WeDo visual drag-and-drop programming software. In this children’s robotic course, participants are taught engineering basics with an emphasis on exploration and trial and error field-testing. Instead of simply “snapping bricks together,” participants are encouraged to think critically about how and why their design needs to adapt to changing conditions. Our guided, personalized instruction allows younger participants to understand more complicated engineering techniques such as gear use, pulleys, and inclined planes.
