WeDo Project Ideas

WeDo project ideas

Looking for ways to get started with WeDo? This collection of handouts explores each of the WeDo components -- motor, distance sensor, tilt sensor -- in a short project.

  • Small, Large: Use the distance sensor and set size block to make the cat smaller and larger.
  • Monster Music: Use the distance sensor, set color effect block, and the play note block to make the character change color and play music.
  • Cat Controller: Use the tilt sensor and change x/y blocks to make the cat move around the stage.
  • Costume Change: Use the tilt sensor and next costume block to scroll through a sprite's costumes.
  • Moving Along: Use the motor blocks, key pressed blocks, and move block to control the motor and move the cat by pressing the left and right arrows.

This reminds me: I added some WeDo projects to my website containing Scratch (and BYOB) implementions of Karel and Braitenberg robots: http://code.google.com/p/scratch-karel/. The archive contains numerous closeup photos of the LEGO construction of three projects. The Scratch programs needed are actually quite simple.

Hi Karen, I am new to the ScratchEd community but have already found a plethora of great information. Thank you for posting this about WeDo and Scratch. It was very helpful and I can only begin to get my head around what is possible with this. Thanks again!
