The LEGO Education WeDo™ Robotics Construction Set, aimed at children aged 6-11 introduces LEGO robotics to younger audience. The set combines the beloved LEGO bricks with one motor, two sensors, and a hub that connects the model to the computer. Simple drag-and-drop visual programming software is then used to bring the model to life. With this kid-friendly approach, the set makes learning fun, inspiring and engaging. Kids learn about complex topics in the fields of physics, engineering, and programming, as well as develop motor and cognitive skills through robot building, all as they have fun with LEGO bricks.These projects help children to lay the foundation for lifelong learning.
LEGO® StoryStarter gets kids to work together to create and build stories with LEGO® bricks and figures, then use the unique StoryVisualiser Software to visualise, write and communicate their work.
