Students work with a partner and choose a new robot to build each week. Each class begins with a group discussion of the critical components of the robot. The class will then view an on-screen animated video that brings the robot to life and shows them exactly what the finished robot can do. After constructing the robot with LEGO® pieces, they will connect it to a laptop computer via a USB cable and program it with easy-to-use software. After programming the robot, kids will use the remaining 10-20 minutes of class to play with their robots and share with parents. Each class will conclude with a group discussion of what was learned. LEGO® WeDo kits, laptop computers, software and all other supplies and materials will be provided.
