WeDo experiment with motor start, stop, sound, dice

Here is a little experiment with the Lego WeDo robotic set using the Start block, Motor this way block, Sound block, Motor stop block with the number block controlling the sound.

Try changing the number and observing what happens. You will notice that the motor turns for as long as the sound is playing, then stop. Try replacing the number block with the dice (random) block.
