Dr. E’s Challenges for November

For November, Dr. E has two new challenges to try.

Trophy is the Dr. E’s WeDo Challenge. Trophies are awarded to the winners of competitions. But what about everyday achievements? Make a WeDo trophy to celebrate an accomplishment you’re proud of: learning to ride a bike, taking care of a pet, preparing a meal, etc. Your trophy should use movement and/or sound to show what you achieved.


For Dr. E’s MINDSTORMS Challenges, the November theme is Puppet Show. Create a MINDSTORMS puppet. The type is up to you–hand puppet, finger puppet, shadow puppet, marionette–anything goes! However, you must use an EV3 or NXT, plus a least one motor or sensor in your creation.
