Lego Education WeDo Robotics has won the Worlddidac Award 2010 which is given to innovative, high-quality products with the potential to change the world of learning.
The Lego WEDO Robotics activities enables students in the age group from 5 to 8 to work as young scientists, engineers, mathematicians and creative writers providing them with the settings, tools and tasks for completing cross curricular Projects.
Students are encouraged to build and program a working model and then use the model for different purposes, depending upon the theme of the activity and its focused subject matter. Junior Engineer in Bangkok from Kids Robotics Learning Center in Bangkok
The 12 activities have been organized around four themes with three activities in each theme. The themes use technology, the building and programming of the model, along with a project oriented approach to integrate concepts across the curriculum. However, each theme does focus on one subject area more than others.
Six open-ended Problem-Solving Activities are included inspired by the two themes and real-life technology. In these activities students are challenged to design and program their own models. Each activity includes a design brief for students, and a list of guiding questions designed to help students complete the activity.
