Title: LEGO Education WeDo2.0

Presenter: Mark Lockett – LEGO Education Australia

Type: Practical session

Duration: 60 mins

Overview: Combining hands-on LEGO® bricks with easy-to-use coding software and inspiring STEM projects, LEGO Education WeDo 2.0 enables teachers and their students to explore the building blocks of coding in a real-world environment. The unique combination of building with the familiar LEGO bricks, using easy-to-use coding software and engaging curriculum relevant STEM challenges makes coding fun and relevant for Primary students.

Coding is part of what is called computational thinking, a fundamental set of skills that all students need to be prepared for the future real-world challenges. This approach to problem solving can help students in all STEM subjects and beyond.

WeDo 2.0 helps students develop ways of thinking with coding as its foundation
