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

DJ’s Drawbridge

My proverb is a Ship In The Harbor Is Safe But That Is Not Why Ships Are Built.  It means to take risks.  I built a ship and a drawbridge.  My ship is heading out to sea but the captain is worried that he might hit the bridge and sink.  Luckily, the bridge opens for him and he passes safely.  I used one motor and a motion sensor to make the bridge rise up and lower back down.  I had fun making my project, have fun watching it!

    We love your ingenious solution! How clever of you to think of a drawbridge to illustrate your proverb. Nicely done.
