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

Dancing Giant

In Giant Escape, the giant wakes when someone comes near. Modify the giant to do a dance move.

Use the WeDo recording feature to have the song play before your giant does its dance. To start recording, click on the round record button under the microphone in the upper left corner of the screen. To stop recording, click on the square stop button. The recording is saved as Sound 1.


Want your sound and dance to run at the same time?  Use the Send Message and Start on Message icons to run both programs at once.
