WeDo Robotics

Our class had the opportunity to visit the media lab today where scholars incorporated technology and engineering skills to build and program robotic lions.

The Lego WeDo Wild Animals materials provided a connection between our animal research, part of the science, reading and writing curriculum and our technology and engineering curriculum. There are three animal builds included in this activity pack: The Hungry Alligator, The Flying Bird, and the Roaring Lion. We chose to build the Roaring Lion today.

After a brief introduction, scholars worked with a partner to navigate through the step by step building and programing guide. As you can imagine, they were VERY engaged! They were beside themselves when after just 30 minutes, they had build a Lego lion that sat up, laid down and roared!
