Lego. Great to play with, a real pain when stepped on.
Teachers may have to take more care underfoot, as these little plastic building blocks have been combined with a software system to teach kids more about robots.
Lego Education has unveiled WeDo 2.0 – a package of projects for educating children aged 7 to 10 about science and engineering. In a nutshell, it contains the instructions and equipment for kids to build robots out of Lego.
Dr Christina Chalmers, Queensland University of Technology education expert, aligned WeDo 2.0 to the requirements of the Australian Science Curriculum. She said this is one package that can make STEM education more fun for kids.
“This just gives [teachers] a chance to keep going with their passion and they know that it’s going to excite the kids as well,” Chalmers said.
