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

The Spinning TV Couch


 The spinning couch is an amazing piece of furniture.  It will spin for 5 seconds.  The sound will be a spinning sound and will go until the motor stops.

    We enjoyed your design and also want to know what the flying object is. It looks like it might make you pretty dizzy. Very nice job.

    We like how you showed your program, we wonder why it’s called the Spinning TV Couch? Also, nice music for the introduction, very catchy! ( 3rd graders )

    What is the object that comes off the top of the couch and spins around? It does look quite “deadly.” At least the couch sitters are well protected from it!
