Weebots in the Classroom

All About Achieving Learning Centers uses Lego Education WeDo™ materials to provide 90 minute lessons incorporating science, technology, engineering, and math . Students work together in small groups to build and program working models. Once programmed, students use the model for different purposes, experimenting with programming techniques. These educational opportunities encourage students to develop broader communication and language skills through cross curricular projects. Extension activities are provided to classroom teachers to enhance reading, writing and language goals. Experienced certified teachers bring the materials and technology into the classroom of up to 24 students, ages 7 and up. In an effort to support widespread use of Lego Education WeDo™, classroom teachers are welcome to observe or participate in the lessons.
