|Mechanical Engineering Professor
|Puerto Rico, United States
|Being a Mechanical Engineer Professor in Puerto Rico, I ended up collaborating with the local MSP Program (U.S. Department of Education's Mathematics and Science Partnerships Program), through the Faculty of Education at the University of Puerto Rico in San Juan (a program that provides professional development to educators with the goal of student achievement in math and science). I was selected to be in charge of robotics workshops for elementary school teachers, that is where I discover the LEGO WeDo platform.LEGO WeDo is a great kit designed for the classroom with a number of activities for the teacher that covers what I could call STEM+A (science, technology, engineering, math, and arts). Working with a wonderful group of teachers, I decided to design new robots so they would have additional material for their students. Since I know many teachers will also need new class material, I felt compelled to share new designs that go over the 12 original models already included. I am not alone with the designs, my brother Osvaldo is heavily working in new surprising models, he already surpassed me in number of designs!
