WRO welcomes LEGO® Education WeDo 2.0

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.

Why is WeDo 2.0 a great addition to the WRO events?

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.

Getting started with WRO WeDo competitions

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.
