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. Thank you, The folks at Dr. E’s

Art Show

Goal:  It is time for a WeDo art show! Make a WeDo artist that creates a picture. It can draw with markers, scribble with crayons, splatter paint, whatever you wish. Film your artist at work and also show us the finished picture.


Start date: January 1, 2016
Due date: January 31, 2016

Rules: Your picture must be done by a WeDo artist, not a human one. You may use any medium you want–marker, paint , crayon, etc. You may even combine several media. Be sure to show us your artist at work and also show us the finished artwork. You may use only the sensors and motors from the WeDo kit. However, you are welcome to use multiple WeDo kits, additional LEGO pieces, and non-LEGO materYials. Tips for using motors can be found here: Design for Motion and tips for using sensors with WeDo software can be found here: Using Sensors.
