Proposal

St. Senan’s Primary school is a designated disadvantaged school in an urban area. We feel that the amazing Lego WeDo 2.0 would open up endless opportunities for our children’s learning and thinking skills. Lego WeDo 2.0 infuses students with enthusiasm, motivation and excitement to learning in its own unique way.

WeDo 2.0 covers key elements of the science curriculum and promotes Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) in an innovative and exciting manner for children. We believe WeDo will be invaluably beneficial to the children’s mindset and attitude towards STEM.

The school recently borrowed a set of Lego Wedo 2.0 for a period of two weeks. Instantly, the benefits were obvious. The Lego building blocks helped fine motor skills of some children. The children were able to plan, design, build and analyse their models. Teamwork was integral to this process. The children developed their problem solving strategies, critical thinking and communication skills, all the while having fun with new and innovative educational technology. The children were also introduced to coding. Needless to say they thoroughly enjoyed working on this and seeing their designs ‘come alive’. We found the children in our school lacked logic and reasoning skills and this will certainly improve their computational thinking.

STEM is the way forward and the children in our school will have their eyes and minds opened to STEM through Lego Wedo. Exposing the children to this technology will be the way forward for them.
