Lego Wedo (1st-4th)


Course Description

This course utilizes LEGO Education’s award-winning WeDo core sets to build upon students’ software and hardware skills. Students will explore, create, and share their discoveries and creations as they build, program, and modify projects. Students will also establish and build communication and collaboration skills as they work with their peers to deeply engage in topics of science, technology, engineering, and programming. Our lessons provide resources that will not only improve students’ skills in programming, but also in their confidence to ask scientific questions, define problems and design their processes and solutions. Lessons will present tasks for students to complete that are centered around a topic that will challenge students’ innovation, collaborative, software, and hardware skills. The language used for this course is a drag and drop coding block language very similar to the Scratch language created by MIT.
