3rd Graders Coding and Building... STEM!
Students work in teams of two to build projects using the Lego We Do program on the computer. They program the computer using simple coding, connect their projects to the computer, and their projects move.

If the projects don't work as expected, students need to troubleshoot and work through the building directions to find mistakes. They also work to improve the designs provided by the We Do program and can create their own programming to change movements and sounds of their projects.
