Robotic WeDo®2.0 (animation only)
Robots to build and program!
Did you know that robotics is accessible to everyone, even the young kids? This is what we will learn about in this turnkey activity. The Lego® Education WeDo®2.0 material uses a two-step approach: building the robot using Lego® bricks and creating the program on a computer to animate the robot using its electric motor. Here is a sample of the different robots that your scientists will build during our visits: birds that sing and dance, a Beyblade spinning top or soccer players! You won’t be able to stop them!
