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

Miracle Foundation’s Anwesha home group #7 for Dr.E’s Robotics Challenge – December 2016


This is a demonstration of a robot put together for Dr.E's robotics challenge by kids at the Anwesha orphanage home of the Miracle Foundation in December 2016. These kids have developed from being completely computer illiterate to being robotics designers in 3 months thanks to a two-part course - first by Science in a Suitcase and the second by us at STEMPower.

The theme for the month's Dr. E's Challenge is "Wearables". These kids have built a NECKLACE with a protection mechanism - a sensor that both alerts and harms anyone trying to snatch it away.
