LEGO WeDo! –
Robotics with lego workshop in may, summer camps for boys
The LEGO Education WeDo™ Robotics Construction Set, aimed at children aged 6-11 introduced 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.
Why LEGO WeDo?
Enables students to work as young scientists, engineers, mathematicians and creative writers providing them with the settings, tools and tasks for completing cross curricular projects.
What to do?
Children build and program a working model and then use the model for different purposes, depending upon the theme of the activity and its focused subject matter in science, technology, mathematics or language
How it helps?
A play full learning approach
Think creatively to make a working model
Develop vocabulary and communication skills to explain how the model works
Establish links between cause and effect
Reflect on how to find answers and imagine new possibilities
Make systematic observations and measurements
Follow 2D drawings to build a 3D model
Think logically and create a program to produce a specific behaviour
Write and present creative stories using models for visual and dramatic effects
No previous experience required.
3 guided projects such as: opening bridge, drumming monkey, recycling truck,
1 free built robotic project
Using motor, axles, tilt sensor, gears, motion sensor, lever, pulleys and writing algorithms / programming.
A lot of FUN! Children will develop their 21st-century skills like problem solving, collaboration and communication.
