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
Goal: Halloween is almost here, so it is time to trick or treat! Make a WeDo trick-or-treater—how it looks and moves are up to you, but it must say “Trick or treat!”
Start date: October 1, 2015 Due date: October 31, 2015
Rules: Your trick-or-treater can be cute, funny, scary–whatever you want–as long as it says “Trick or Treat.” 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 materials. For tips on using sound with the WeDo program, check out this snippet: Programming Sound.
This is a joint challenge with Dr E’s MINDSTORMS Challenges. Click here to see the MINDSTORMS challenge.
This group of kindergartners decided to create a huge spooky scene with a booby traped door that screams “trick or treat”!! Check out the video. Thank you for viewing our exhibit! Super Sacrifice Door Booby Trap
