Blue - Test Driver: Left

Test Driver

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 75-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

Cognitive competences

Every minute of every day, we use logic and our cognitive competences to understand the world around us. They help us solve complex problems, find solutions, remember stuff and learn new things.

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.
