Educators can now help second through fourth grade pupils to learn about engineering, technology and programming in a more unique and fun way on Windows 10 devices – as the LEGO Education WeDo 2.0 app has, reports WinBeta, just been added to the Windows Store.
Many of us can probably remember the fun we had building our own LEGO creations during our childhoods. And now, through incorporating a library of 17 projects, 40 hours of material, and an idea-packed Design Library, WeDo 2.0 can pique pupils’ curiosity and encourage them to investigate ideas, experiment, and solve problems – all by putting together LEGO bricks!
The WeDo 2.0 app is now free to download for Windows 10, Windows 10 Mobile and Windows 8.1. This gives it an obvious appeal for educators who are already deploying Windows 10 computers or tablets in classrooms, and the software is also available for Mac, Chromebook, iPad and Android tablet.
However, to practically use the software in their classrooms, educators will also require the LEGO Education WeDo 2.0 Core set. This packages the WeDo 2.0 hardware, including a sorting tray and labels, 280 LEGO building pieces, a Bluetooth Smarthub, a medium motor, and motion and tilt sensors, and can be ordered for $159.95 from LEGO Education.
