Leaving Fear Aside

Casvi Villaviciosa > New Technologies > Leaving Fear Aside

In robotics class, our 4th graders built with LEGO WeDo a “hungry crocodile”. Its construction was possible thanks to Scratch and through Hub, which is an engine and a distance sensor.

According to the programmed distance, the crocodile opens or closes its mouth pretending, therefore, that it is eating.

It’s a fun activity that not only develops students’ logical thinking and improves their self-esteem as well as their desire for self-improvement, but it also poses a challenge: to program by themselves.
