Lego WeDo – Computing

This term in Y5 we have been mastering our skills at programming computers to solve real world problems and control output devices. We have been using Lego WeDo sets to build a fan with a working electrical motor and then been using Scratch to program the Lego. Challenges we have faced are trying to get the motor to turn off and on for a set time and some of use managed to get ours to speed up and slow down gradually using complicated coding loops.




Better still a few groups even managed to program their fan to switch on and off using an Infra-red sensor.
