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

Hello 2015!


Goal: A shared celebration on both of Dr E’s Sites: MINDSTORMS and WeDo.  Create a welcome celebration for 2015. Your celebration can include a contraption, a display, whatever you want—but it must include the number 2015 in it!

Start date: December 1, 2014 Due date: December 31, 2014

Rules: Celebrate the start of 2015 using motors, sensors, lights, sounds–the more enthusiastic, the better. You can only use the sensors and motors from the WeDo or MINDSTORMS kits. However, you are welcome to use multiple kits, additional LEGO pieces, and non-LEGO materials. Remember, your celebration must include the number 2015!
