This is a fun and fast-paced class for early to mid-level elementary students who love working with LEGO. Students work in partner pairs with LEGO Education's Simple Machines sets and progress through challenging units in Levers, Pulley systems, Gears, and Wheels and Axles. We experiment with incorporating small motors to some models and record observations and modifications in personal class journals. At mid-year we transition to LEGO Education's We-Do Robotics sets, designed specifically for children new to robotics. Using LEGO kits and class laptops, students build a variety of tethered structures and program them to move and make sounds using easy to learn software. I strive to introduce new builds each year for returning students.
