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

The Frankenstein

Malina nad Marusia had thought to create a Frankenstein. They are absolutely sure that it is the scariest character all over the world. What can be more terrifying than falling down head?

The mechanism of falling head. Look at this worm and gear connection!

This is girl's program. They created soud "Trick or treat" by their own.

 Take a look at short film where we explain how our Frankenstein works. There are details about construction and program.

Girls don't look like scary - they had great fun creating this robot.

    Awesome scissor lift! And I love the way you combine high-tech and low-tech–MINDSTORMS and cardboard boxes. Nice job explaining your mechanism and program, too.

      Girls were absolutely focused on expalinig how robot works. I suppose they put as much work in cardboard body and head of Frank as in mechanism.
      Thank you very much for your kind words.
