We are very proud to be able to present a brand-new addition to the WRO competitions! We have teamed up with the people at LEGO® Education to design two competition formats for children up to 10 years old, based on the engaging LEGO Education WeDo 2.0 platform.
WeDo 2.0 gives elementary students the ideal tools to work on their robotics and programming skills. The block-based programming platform of WeDo 2.0 is a natural first step towards the LEGO® MINDSTORMS® platform, which makes this new competition format a great entry point into WRO.
Did you know that WeDo 2.0 is not only easy-to-use, but also enables students to build more elaborate and complex robots? By using the WeDo 2.0 multihub function, students can connect 3 hubs to one device* and then use a function called “send block” to send commands from one device to another (if they share the same network). This way, there is no limit to their creativity!
*For the best multihub function experience, we recommend the iOS system.
In the WRO 2020 season we offer two competitions with WeDo 2.0:
- A Regular Category based challenge
- An Open Category based challenge, following the general Open Category format (WeDo 1.0 is allowed as well)
The General Rules & Season Challenges can be downloaded from our website.
Our National Organizers can choose if they want to start a WeDo competition in their country.
Please note that there will not be an international final for the WeDo competitions. The competition is only a national opportunity at the moment.
