Meet the New Lego Coding Kit for Young Engineers

Your young genius will now have it easy in terms of selecting to study engineering and becoming a professional coder. Never mind going with robotics as a life choice. The Spike Prime kit is targeted towards the most creative and yet finding it hard to concentrate age group, those in grades 6 to 8. If you thought that they were difficult in the house, try in a classroom where there are over 12 of them at any time. Well, Lego has found the best way of teaching and introducing your young ones to the world of engineering creativity.

  • The Spike Prime Lego coding kit has over 500 Technic pieces in all that can be used to construct shapes and units.

  • The brand new Spike Prime kit is programmed using a Lego-made app that was built off the Scratch language. It’s an improvement to other learning kits introduced before it.

  • Alongside the Spike Prime kit, Lego is also introducing new Technic bricks, such as a 3x3 frame, that will revolutionise building and make the construction of Lego easier.

  • There is also a set of wheels that are easily mounted to motors, a base plate to use when prototyping students’ designs and a set of wire clips that keep everything tidy.

  • The Lego programmable kit is perfect for anyone who’s still learning and would love to be inspired all the time. It is the ultimate gift for your grade 7 and can be brought into the country through parcel forwarding services as a learning aid.

The new Spike Prime programming bricks Scratch-Technic-robots system is a fun and yet effective method of teaching. Your kids will be smiling even when engrossed in a lesson. So, yes, it is worth the time and effort that will go into purchasing the Lego set from overseas. For middle-schoolers, better than the Mindstorms kits actually.

This is one of the best educational tools in our day and age. The Lego Spike Prime kit is goal and target oriented. With this new kit, there’s no need to ask students to come up with any kind of robot from a box full of Technic bricks. Using the Spike Prime programming bricks, middle-schoolers can solve problems using easy-to-follow guidance and a specific goal.

Using its own implementation of Scratch for Spike Prime, the Lego brand has introduced a system that brings the fun back into learning. The Lego version of Spike Prime is a more robust and upgraded version of Scratch and it’s way better than a simple learn-to-code kit such as Anki’s Cozmo.
