LEGO Education SPIKE Prime is the STEAM learning tool for students in grades 5-8, with a focus on developing skills in creativity, collaboration and critical thinking. Combining new and familiar building elements in a refreshing new colour scheme, easy-to-use hardware, and intuitive drag-and-drop coding language based on Scratch, SPIKE Prime continuously engages students through playful learning activities to think critically and to solve complex problems – regardless of their learning level.
LEGO Education SPIKE Prime offers four units, each with a specific theme focus. All units are designed to develop critical thinking skills through complex, engaging and personally relevant STEAM challenges. The lessons within each unit will become increasingly challenging and all include teacher support, introduction videos, curriculum links, extension exercises and more. The SPIKE App, based on the most widely used programming language in teaching – Scratch – can be used on both iOS and Android tablets, and Windows 10.
