WeDo Robotics

First, we read Helper Robots, and went over the vocabulary. Then, we re-watched our favorite BrainPoP movie. Next, we worked together to complete the National Geographic Interactive Robot Challenge.  Try it Yourself !!

Upload a screen shot of your robot using the UPLOAD FILE button on the WeDo Robotics page, and we can add it to our gallery!

3D Printing and Design

We watched a video about the 3D Printing process and another video that featured some amazing 3D Designs, but our lesson was on deigning a Robot Head Pencil Topper! Click here to see a 2 minutes video of the lesson.
