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

Maria, Thorhalli Gunnar og Tobias

 We once again spent an English day working with Dr. E.'s WeDo challenges to practise communicating in English. Even though they are on very various levels, they all seem to be having fun and as a teacher I see lots of development... so who said school can't be fun :-)
This group uses a large to small gear combination to have their elements spin at different speeds. They desperately tried to make it work to play a long with Jingle Bells because they have this crazy teacher who sings it all year long and promised the class cake if anybody could do that (Ok that teacher is me, but it's just so catchy). About the video... I challenged Thorhalli Gunnar to give a bit of personality because his English skills are pretty good... no idea it would be a reincarnated Bob Marley personality...
