LEGO® Education SPIKE™ Essential × 15

It’s time to raise a new robot! Welcome to our family SPIKE™ Essential!

LEGO® Education’s brand new SPIKE™ Essential Set ignites primary school pupils’ passion for STEAM learning through playful problem-solving, preparing them to be resilient, independent thinkers.
 
As part of the LEGO Learning System, SPIKE Essential engages all pupils in hands-on investigation of STEAM concepts while contributing to literacy, maths and social-emotional development. Curriculum-aligned learning units use everyday themes, relatable minifigures with different personalities and familiar LEGO building elements to solve problems through storytelling. We love it! SPIKE Essential combines icon and word-based block coding with simple hardware – including an intelligent Hub, motors, a Light Matrix and a Colour Sensor – to bring STEAM concepts to life. Pupils plan and develop creative solutions through trial and error while working with their friends – and having fun!
