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

If You Go to a Donkey’s House


 My Jamaican proverb is:  If You Go to a Donkey's House Don't Talk About Ears.  This proverb means don't judge other people by their appearance.  I made the donkey by looking at a picture of a LEGO horse and using it as the base of my design.  Then I changed it's features to look like a donkey's.  I found a way to connect a gear to the donkey to make it look like it was walking, and I added a person to represent the person going to the donkey's house.  I showed the proverb by using a background block and typing my proverb there.  Then I programmed the gear to spin so that the donkey appears to be walking.

    Well done, your use of the background with the words was very clever and your explaination was very helpful. And last but not least, your big eared donkey was adorable!
