The LEGO Education Spike Prime Set is one of the latest STEM educational solutions for children that aims to merge play with technological lessons to keep young minds interested as they partake in hands-on procedures. Coming with 523 components in total, the kit is aimed at middle school students to help introduce them to coding and accelerate their practical problem solving capabilities. Students will have to utilize the various LEGO brick components to build their project before taking to a tablet or PC to perform the various coding needs through the LEGO Scratch graphical user interface (GUI).
The LEGO Education Spike Prime Set is priced at $329.99 and is being marketed directly to schools instead of consumers to help get the equipment into classrooms by next fall. The kit will be available starting in August 2019.
