Help your students to scale the heights of robotics fun with the latest WeDo Challenge from Dr. E!
The WeDo Mountain Challenge asks students to design and make a new ski lift to transport LEGO® people up the slopes at WeDo Mountain, the LEGO ski resort, using LEGO® Education WeDo. The ski lift will need to be controlled by a sensor and its cycle has to finish back at the starting position.
This challenge is the latest in a series created by the engineering experts at the Center for Engineering Education and Outreach (CEEO) at Tufts University in the US. The aim is to encourage more students to become involved in engineering before the age of 18.
The team, led by Dr. Ethan E. Danahy (Dr. E), Engineering Research Program Director at the CEEO, have come up with a series of WeDo challenges for young engineers to complete.
The learning community created by Dr. E’s Challenges means that both teachers and pupils can find support for the projects online, with tutorials and advice on offer via the website and social media.
The WeDo Mountain Challenge closes on November 22. You can find out more by visiting the Dr. E’s Challenges website by clicking here.
