Building from their investigation of simple machines, Holden Elementary third graders have been using the Lego WeDo system to explore robotics. Lego WeDo is an entry level robotics system designed for ages 7-11, providing cross-curriculum opportunities for STEM. The system uses drag-and-drop software to program over 150 elements provided with the kit, including a motor, motion and tilt sensors & a LEGO USB hub. The students have been approaching their Lego work by implementing the engineering design process, the steps that an engineer uses in constructing solutions and products to solve a problem.
