  • 2 LEGO® WeDo LEGO®
    WeDo is a global standard teaching material that allows children to experience programming and manufacturing in a fun and easy way. With the cooperation of MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA), we interviewed more than 100 educators around the world and conducted prototype tests, and developed based on the advice. Project-based learning is easy with LEGO® blocks and freely programmable digital technology that many children have been accustomed to since childhood. Through a series of processes such as predicting the answer, examining it, shaping the idea, and presenting it, it is useful for developing children’s communication skills, collaboration skills, and teamwork. It is a unique teaching material that allows you to study across various subjects including STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) such as science, technology, mathematics, engineering, and literacy while focusing on science. The software is compatible with iPad, Android, Windows tablets, PCs and Macs. It also works with Scratch.
