Using LEGO® We-Do 2.0 kids will explore great science projects, including engineering, technology, and programming.

  • Engage curiosity by enabling pupil to investigate and design ideas across a range of science topics
  • Boost confidence by encouraging experimentation and problem solving
  • Empower pupil to explore, create, and share projects with a wider audience
  • Excite interest in science, including engineering, technology, and programming by making it real and relevant
  • Explore phase
    Kids connect to a scientific question or an engineering problem, establish a line of inquiry, and consider possible solutions. The steps of the Explore phase are: connect and discuss.
    Create phase
    Kids build, program, and modify a LEGO® model. Projects can be one of three types: investigate, design solutions and use models. Depending on the type of project, the Create phase will differ from one project to another.
    The steps of the Create phase are: build, program, and modify.
    Share phase
    Kids present and explain their solutions and findings using their LEGO® models and the documents they have created with the integrated Documentation tool.
    The steps of the Share phase are: document and present.
    During each of these phases, Kids will document their findings, the answers, and the process using various methods. This document can be exported and used for assessment, display or for sharing with parents.

The ability to code computer programs is an important part of literacy in today’s society. When people learn to code in Scratch, they learn important strategies for solving problems, designing projects, and communicating ideas. Scratch is a programming language. As children create with Scratch, they learn to think creatively, work collaboratively, and reason systematically. Scratch is designed and maintained by the Lifelong Kindergarten group at the MIT Media Lab.
