Flexi – Class WeDo 2.0

LEGO® Education WeDo 2.0 is developed to engage and motivate children’s interest in learning science- and engineering-related subjects. This is done through the use of motorized LEGO models and simple programming.

WeDo 2.0 supports a hands-on, “minds on” learning solution that gives children the confidence to ask questions and the tools to find the answers and to solve real-life problems.

WeDo 2.0 uses a project progression defined by three phases.

1.Explore phase
Students connect to a scientific question or an engineering problem, establish a line of inquiry, and consider possible solutions. The steps of the Explore phase are: connect and discuss.

2.Create phase
Students build, program, and modify a LEGO®model. Projects can be one of three types: investigate, design solutions, and use models. Depending on the type of project, the Create phase will differ from one project to another. The steps of the Create phase are: build, program, and modify.

3.Share phase
Students present and explain their solutions using their LEGO models and the document they have created with their findings with the integrated Documentation tool. The steps of the Share phase are: document and present.

During each of these phases, students will document their findings, the answers, and the process using various methods.

 

Basic units

WeDo 2.0 equips children with computational thinking which is a necessary thought process in this rapidly changing world.

Computational thinking characteristics include:

  • Logical reasoning
  • Looking for patterns
  • Organizing and analyzing data
  • Modeling and simulations
  • Using computers to assist in testing models and ideas
  • Using algorithms to sequence actions

The WeDo 2.0 projects will bring the children on a journey of using mechanisms in their models. These mechanism will bring their models to life and provide  inspiration to your children when they look for solutions.

In the software, they will find building instructions for something that:

  1. Wobbles
  2. Drives
  3. Cranks
  4. Walks
  5. Spins
  6. Flexes
  7. Reels
  8. Lifts
  9. Grabs
  10. Pushes
  11. Revolves
  12. Steers
  13. Sweeps
  14. Detects motion
  15. Detects tilt
