Sadly, Dr. E’s WeDo Challenges and Dr. E’s MINDSTORMS Challenges will no longer be posting new challenges. However, both websites will remain up so that you can continue to access the previous challenges and all of the wonderful submissions. Thank you to LEGO Education and to the Center for Engineering Education and Outreach at Tufts University for their years of support (and thank you to LEGO for their amazing robotics platforms). During the six years of WeDo challlenges and five years of MINDSTORMS challenges, we received almost 1000 submissions from around the world. The two websites had a total of 1266 registered users from 57 different countries. We were truly a global community! We have always been inspired and energized by the creativity and innovation shown by the Dr. E's Challenges community; while new challenges won't be posted moving forward, we hope that you continue doing awesome stuff in your homes, clubs, and classrooms and that you continue to share your projects with the world! Collaborating with all of you has been a joy and an inspiration. Thank you, The folks at Dr. E’s

High tech Jack and the beanstalk

In the "Jack and the bean stalk" story, Jack climbs up the bean stalk and have to come down in a hurry when the gaint chases him.  In this version, when Jack saw the long bean stalks, he builds an escalator to take him to the top of the bean stalk easily.  And when the gaint comes chasing him, he can quickly come down on the escalator and the escalator stays hidden in the bean stalks.  The escalator is programmed to go to the top, wait for 10 seconds and come down.

    Way to go, Manu! This should definitely fix it! I like the set design including the LEGO tower! Your system works fast — just what Jack needs!
