This series of workshops is designed for students 1st through 3rd grade that have not had previous experience with the beginning robotics LEGO® WeDo curriculum. In these classes, students will be introduced to beginning robotics using LEGO® WeDo kits and software. Through the use of the kits our future engineers will design and build models which incorporate WeDo sensors and motors. After that students will be able to bring their creations to life using icon-based programming software.
