Highlights from the AT&T Classroom - LEGO WeDo Robotics

This morning RCET welcomed campers to the AT&T Classroom for the LEGO WeDo Robotics camp. The LEGO WeDo system combines traditional LEGO bricks with programming software to introduce design thinking and the basic elements of programming to young children.  Today campers were introduced to the LEGO WeDo system, including the drag-and-drop software, and the various tools and pieces they will be using to create the project models including the LEGO USB Hub, motor, tilt sensor, and motion sensor. The campers progressed through a series of initial projects that provided experience in programming simple builds with the software to add movement and sound with the gears, motors and sensors. Across the week the campers will explore strategies for building and programming to create increasingly complex LEGO models.
