WeDo World Cup

 Goal: Make a super-short film of your favorite book or movie. You decide how much of the story to include–it can be a brief scene, several scenes, or the entire book or movie. You can even change the ending if you want. Use the WeDo motors and sensors to add action. You can include WeDo sounds and backgrounds too. However, your film cannot be more than half a minute long!

Start date: September 4, 2013
Due date: October 1, 2013.

Rules: The motor must create motion that leads to action seen in a soccer match. You may use multiple WeDo kits. Please only use motors or sensors from the WeDo kit; aside from that, external materials are allowed. Tips for using the WeDo motor can be found here: Building with Motors. When you have completed the challenge, write a description of your soccer-bot and upload a video of it to this site.
