What this activity teaches
This teacher-led lesson activity, adapted for the Hour of Code, provides opportunities to explore physical programming (robotics). Children design and build models using construction bricks and bring them to life with code!
Using a visual drag-and-drop programming environment and LEGO WeDo parts (motor and hub and optional sensors), pupils learn that physical systems can be programmed and controlled using algorithms and code.
Includes a step-by-step activity plan, associated teacher and pupil resources and ideas for extension and enrichment to take learning further.
