Make coding come to life with the LEGO WeDo kit. Using Tynker's intuitive visual coding approach, and the WeDo kit, you'll will engage in both digital and physical creation. Incorporating the the touch sensor, the accelerometer, and the optical sensor allows for an array of inspiring STEM projects. By the end of the week, you'll build 10 fun real-world projects including a game controller, a rock band, and a car that is programmed to avoid obstacles.
How this course works: Students sign in to their Tynker accounts from a Chromebook or desktop computer and complete a Tynker lesson online. Then, they sign-in to their account from the Tynker app on a shared iPad device. The DIY projects will be available under the "My Projects" section in their app. They will be able to modify and run the programs on the iPad to control the accessory via Bluetooth. You can share one or two tablets between all students in a classroom and they can take turns controlling the accessary.
