LEAP Into LEGO Robotics!
For 35 years, LEGO® Education has been working with teachers and educational specialists to deliver playful learning experiences that bring subjects to life in the classroom and make learning fun and impactful.
LEGO® Education has a wide range of physical and digital educational resources that encourage students to think creatively, reason systematically and release their potential to shape their own future.
This session will give teachers hands-on experience with two of the STEM solutions for educators - WeDo 2.0 and LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3.
WeDo 2.0 makes elementary science come to life through hands-on tasks, real-world projects, and relevant technology that engages students. Through project-based activities, students’ skills are enhanced across science, engineering, technology, and coding.
For upper elementary, middle and high school students, the LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 enables students to build, program, and test their solutions based on LEGO building bricks and real-life robotics technology. This solution can enhance student skills in math, science, technology, engineering and computer science.
The workshop will feature hands on instruction from NWOCA’s Chris Malanga, a LEGO Education Certified Trainer. During the morning, participants will build and program the WeDo 2.0 using the built-in curriculum. In the afternoon, teachers will work with the MINDSTORMS® EV3, learning how to program the robot to complete a variety of challenges.
