5th Graders Develop Problem Solving Skills with Lego WeDo Robotics

(cross-posted from the Yukon Public Schools Learning Showcase website)

Some 5th grade students at Lakeview Elementary School in Yukon Public Schools are developing their problem solving and computational thinking skills using Lego WeDo Robotics kits. On February 13, 2012, fifth graders Cade and Thomas used the graphical, icon-based programming environment of the Lego WeDo Robotic software to control the motor of a Lego project other students created. In this two minute audio interview, they describe what they are doing with Lego WeDo Robotics and why they enjoy learning how to program a basic robot.
