Challenger Center Colorado is hosting a LEGO® WeDo Design Challenge event for fourth and fifth grade students. LEGO® WeDo kits are innovative, project-based engineering activities consisting of designing and building a machine according to a set of design criteria, and then programming the machine to carry out a specific function. Working in teams, students learn about robotics, problem solving, and engineering through designing, building, programming and testing their LEGO® WeDo. The project can be accomplished in a classroom, after-school club setting, or home school co-op. Additional information about LEGO® WeDo can be found on their website: www.legoeducation.us
The 2017-2018 Design Challenge will be an exercise in teamwork, problem solving, and creativity. Specifics of the challenge will not be announced until the competition begins. Teams will have one hour to build their projects to specified goals and constraints. Awards will be given for first, second and third place. Due to the growth of the competition over the past few years, the WeDo Design Challenge will be split into two divisions, with one division tentatively scheduled to compete on February 26th. The second division is tentatively scheduled to compete on February 28th. Both events will be held in the Venue at Library 21c in Colorado Springs. Competition details and divisions will be sent out after all sign ups emails have been received.
The LEGO® WeDo kit comes with curriculum that closely aligns with Colorado state standards for upper elementary grade students in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
