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

Lights on The Nile Conveyor Belt

Content

 This is a scene from my favorite book, Lights On The Nile by Donna Jo Napoli.  The boys are stealing the girl's monkey and they are taking it down the Nile River.  My conveyor belt represents the Nile River and I used a repeat block to help move the raft down the river.

    Love your long, long Nile–and your LEGO-block monkey. The conveyor belt was a clever way of making flowing water!

    Great Job Violet – you did it! You kept working until you got your “river” built and programmed. 🙂 Your post is very interesting and plan on reading the book this summer.

    AMAZING – WE REALLY LIKED WATCHING THE RIVER MOVE. ALSO, WE LIKED ALL OF YOUR DETAILS LIKE HOW THE CHARACTERS ARE HOLDING THE LEGO MONKEY. GREAT JOB – 2ND GRADE SAGE
