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

Sharko’s Art Bot

LEGO mini "Van Gogh" creates abstract art with a color marker.  The color sensor attached senses the edges and stay within the canvas area to draw.  The randomized pattern makes the mini Van Gogh to go around making geometrical semi circles mixed with abstract lines to create interesting patterns.

    Clever mechanism to hold the marker so that it stays in contact with the paper. Using the light sensor to keep the bot on the paper is a great idea, too. Wonderful job!
