LEGO® Education SPIKE ™ Prime is the all-new way to get students into STEAM and educational robotics, helping them develop their self-esteem.
Students aged 11-15 build and program fun robots and smart devices! SPIKE Prime enhances the development of students’ critical thinking as well as solving complex problems through a fun process where they learn through playing.
SPIKE Prime combines LEGO bricks, a powerful programmable Hub with 6 ports, programming language based on Scratch’s philosophy, and STEAM courses that will enhance self-confidence as well as students’ level of critical thinking. Activities combine construction and programming by facilitating students’ introduction to data collection and analysis and problem solving with real-world applications.
This program leaves the Scratch-based programming uses by Spike Prime and works in developing the coding skills of the students using the Python programming language which is the native programming language of Spike Prime.
Purpose of the program
Participants will learn to build and program robots that will solve real problems of everyday life using the Python programming language.
They will work in teams, assuming distinct roles, to design and create a project in the standards of Educational Robotics Competitions.
