2 Minute Tutorials – Lego WeDo

Lego WeDo

Lego WeDo is a brilliant way to teach robotics!  It is aimed at 6-8 year olds, but it can be adapted so it is suitable for both younger and older children.

It teaches so many important skills:

  • Problem solving
  • Computational thinking
  • Coding
  • Programming
  • Design thinking
  • Creativity

Watch my 2 minute video tutorial to see how to get going with this tech in your classroom:


I’ve created a handy guide sheet to give you some ideas for its use with younger children.  The Year 1 classes at my school loved using it and amazed us all with their progress.
