The We-Do Robotics system features LEGO models that incorporate working motors and sensors with simple programming software. Kids will work as scientists and after school engineers to build, program, and test working models. By building dancing birds, drumming monkeys, and roaring lions they’ll learn about simple machines, complex motion, and the concept of randomness. Score a goal with a robot soccer player, go on a daring airplane rescue, and sail a boat in a storm!
