Course Overview

The LEGO® WeDo® ROBOTICS is a tethered robotics system designed to serve as an intermediate step between the more fully featured robotics platform and regular, non-robotic LEGO®. It’s an easy-to-use set that introduces young students to robotics and teach them to build LEGO® models featuring working motors and sensors; program their models; and explore a series of cross-curricular, theme-based activities while developing their skills in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, as well as language and literacy. The hands-on sessions demonstrate how robots can be applied to problem solving and collaborative learning within a curriculum context and foster a differentiated approach to learning whilst enhancing the integration of robotics into the classroom.
