The LEGO Education WeDo Construction set is a primary education resource developed for younger primary school pupils as an introduction to control technology and programming using robotics. This fantastic cross-curricular construction set can be used in ICT, science and maths as well as language and literacy.
The set contains more than 150 LEGO® elements, including Motion and Tilt Sensors, a motor, and the LEGO USB Hub. The accompanying icon-based drag-and-drop software provides an intuitive programming environment.
Working with theme-based activities, younger primary school pupils are able to build LEGO robotic models with working motors, gears, cams and tilt sensors before programming with the intuitive WeDo robotics software to bring them to life. The WeDo Construction Set enables the pupils to hook up the robots to their computer via the supplied USB hub allowing them to program the robots actions, sounds and responses.
The supporting curriculum pack contains activities that are divided into four themes and provide helpful teacher notes, instructions for project-based learning, a glossary, and building instructions.
