In Test Driver, learners in 1st-3rd grade will find out how adding more weight to a LEGO vehicle will make it go faster and further and what happens if they put on bigger wheels – or even no wheels at all!
This is a 60-minute hands-on, minds-on activity. The Test Driver programme is part of the Blue Zone in LEGO House, and therefore, learners will work in-depth with some of the crucial cognitive competences:
• Problem-solving: The activity provides defined and achievable challenges, and learners are still welcome to identify other problems to solve.
• Iteration and examination: Learners have multiple iterations and must make changes to their designs. They test different solutions and ideas, analyse and draw conclusions based on their findings.
• Ground principles for motion: Learners will become familiar with the forces that affect the motion of an object, such as gravity, potential energy, weight, wheel diameter and friction.
