Video that introduces the WeDo kit What you will make today: The Dancing Birds Follow the step-by-step instructions from the Activity Pack that is built in to the WeDo software to build the dancing birds. Then create a program to make the birds dance. Use the program, the pulleys, and the belt to change the way the birds dance. (Optional) Introduction to Scratch:

We Do WeDo Scratch version 1.4 has special programming blocks to interact with motors and sensors in LEGO WeDo robotic creations. As a part of a course that Mitch Resnick is teaching this term at MIT Media Lab (and I'm TAing), we asked the participants to create a story that combines on-screen and off-screen, using LEGO WeDo and Scratch. To get them started, Mitch did a brief demo of the WeDo and Scratch, showing some of the key blocks and a sample project about a friendly (but misunderstood) alligator. We created a miniguide (which is available on ScratchEd ) and linked to a series of WeDo building instructions. The participants worked in teams of 2 or 3, and they ended up producing a wide variety of imaginative projects.

Soil Layers Activity With LEGO for Kids Earth Science STEM Learn about the layers of soil with a fun hands-on LEGO activity. Our soil layers activity was a fun way to include a little earth science into LEGO play. We have tons of great Kid’s LEGO Activities for STEAM Learning! The other day we used our LEGO bricks to make a slice of the Earth and check out the LAYERS OF THE EARTH! Quick Start Guide What you will need Required SD CardWe recommend an 8GB class 4 SD card – ideally preinstalled with NOOBS. You can buy a card with NOOBS pre-installed, or you can download it for free from our downloads page.Display and connectivity cablesAny HDMI/DVI monitor or TV should work as a display for the Pi .

The LEGO® WeDo™ Construction Kit is a simple robotics tool designed for ages 7–11. LEGOeducationUK Our WeDo Adventure continues and this weeks’ adventure focuses on Language. We all know that being effective communicators is critical to pupils’ success in school and beyond. LEGO Education WeDo really challenges them to sharpen those key skills.

LEGO Building Challenge: Summer STEM Week 1 Camp Welcome to week 1 of our 100 days of Summer STEM activities for kids series where we go week by week with a different theme all summer long! We are starting off our summer fun with a LEGO building challenge week. You can use your collection of LEGO® pieces to come up with your own versions of our LEGO® ideas below! My goal is to have kids of all ages learn through play, and what better play is there than LEGO®! Grab your bricks, and let’s kick off the summer with a LEGO® building challenge week.

Scratch-ing the LEGO WeDo I have been Scratch-ing with LEGO WeDo kits, and my high school level students absolutely love it! The LEGO® Education WeDo™ robotics kit is normally ear-marked as an elementary school product, and Scratch was developed by MIT for young children to be able to program, but the combination of the two has tapped the interest of my elementary school daughter, my middle school son, and my Computer Science students at the high school level. Link: Scratch – old and new The LEGO WeDo construction kit runs about US $130.00, and Scratch Software from MIT is free (download Scratch 1.4). WeDo ReDo This following text was taken from a post by Robert Ferguson on the GeekDad community blog. Two years ago, GeekDad’s Jenny Williams reviewed Lego’s WeDo Robotics Construction Set for children (the review is still an excellent introduction). I’ve been itching to get one ever since, and I finally pulled the trigger when my oldest child appeared ready for it. After spending a lot of time with the product, I thought it time to visit WeDo again.

Programming Lego WeDo 2.0 with Tynker This is a quick-start guide to program your Lego WeDo 2.0 with the Tynker App. Compatibility WeDo 2.0 – LEGO Education WeDo 2.0 Core Set. At this time, WeDo 1.0 is not supported.iPad Tablet – Your iPad must support Bluetooth 4.0 in order to pair with the WeDo. Arduino - JumboBooks The Arduino Uno is a simple micro controller that the user has a large amount of control over. That being said, the Arduino Uno must be connected to a breadboard and other elements to complete this tutorial. This JumboBooks tutorial gives the basics of how to program the Arduino in LabVIEW, including all of the information necessary to create each circuit. The tutorial starts off giving the user two basic pieces of code in LabVIEW to play around with, so that the user can familiarize himself or herself with the Block Diagram and how functions run and flow together.
