Sadly, Dr. E’s WeDo Challenges and Dr. E’s MINDSTORMS Challenges will no longer be posting new challenges. However, both websites will remain up so that you can continue to access the previous challenges and all of the wonderful submissions. Thank you to LEGO Education and to the Center for Engineering Education and Outreach at Tufts University for their years of support (and thank you to LEGO for their amazing robotics platforms).
During the six years of WeDo challlenges and five years of MINDSTORMS challenges, we received almost 1000 submissions from around the world. The two websites had a total of 1266 registered users from 57 different countries. We were truly a global community!
We have always been inspired and energized by the creativity and innovation shown by the Dr. E's Challenges community; while new challenges won't be posted moving forward, we hope that you continue doing awesome stuff in your homes, clubs, and classrooms and that you continue to share your projects with the world!
Collaborating with all of you has been a joy and an inspiration.
The folks at Dr. E’s

This motorized poop picker-upper makes cleaning up after your dog less of a mess! (If you want to use the low-tech approach instead, there’s a handle for using the device without the motor.)
This combination food-and-water dish entertains your dog as well. When the sensor detects the dog, the dish drives forward with lights and sounds.
This dog-dish delivery system slides the food dish to the floor when its sensor detects the dog.
Keep your pet entertained while you are away with the pet skateboard/hoverboard park!

This tire recycling machine is both attractive and functional. When the bin is full of tires, the machine dumps the tires into the collection area.
