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.
The folks at Dr. E’s
Our proverb from Madagascar is: Words are Like Eggs When They Hatch They Have Wings. Our proverb means that when you say something unkind it is very difficult to take it back. Your ugly works take flight just like a hatched bird would. We made a LEGO bird and attached a motor to it along with a cracking egg. The cracking egg contains an ugly word hatching from it. When the egg spins it activates our motion sensort which causes the bird to tweet and the ugly word to fly. Our program turns the motor and uses the motion sensor brick to begin the tweeting sound.
