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

Fairytale Fixer

Goal: Fables, fairy tales, and folktales are wonderful stories with memorable themes. They also have memorable problems to solve like removing a thorn from the lion in Aesop’s fable, ascending Rapunzel’s tower, avoiding the chasing giant in Jack and the Beanstalk, or engaging some active cloaking for Red Riding Hood to hide from the Wolf. Read a fable, fairytale, or folktale of your choosing, pick a challenge you can take on with your MINDSTORMS (EV3 or NXT) kit, invent, and share your solutions on Dr. E’s! When you share your work, tell us what story you picked, show how your design works, and describe how it might change the story.  Dates May 1 to May 31
