Team Model Resources

Teams use their imagination and a LEGO® Education Spike Essentials or WeDo 2.0 set to design and program their Team Model, which focuses on the season challenge. Teams will…

  • Explore real world problems
  • Build their ideas using the Explore Model and Set
  • Learn to design and code and create unique solutions using the LEGO® Education WeDo 2.0 or Spike Essentials and LEGO bricks

The Team Model will should add movement to the Explore Model & Set and showcase the discovery and knowledge gained by the team throughout the season. The Team Model should fit on the SUBMERGED mat and use all three models from the Explore Set. Teams should be ready to share their Team Model at an official Festival Event!

Team Model FAQs

Do we need to use the mat?

According to the Team Meeting guide, teams should use the mat, Explore Model, and LEGO Robotics kit.

Can our Team Model be bigger than the mat?

Teams can extend their building slightly beyond the mat, but should also be mindful that space can be limited at a Festival.

Can we use LEGO items that are not included in the Explore Set?

YES! It is important that your team highlight the Explore Model included in the set, but they are able to use other LEGOs and LEGO Materials. This includes other LEGO robotics elements.
