Lego Education has released the newest product in its Lego Learning System: Lego Education Spike Essential.

Designed for students in Grades 1-5 (aged 6+), Lego Education Spike Essential features five different STEAM curriculum learning units, each with a different theme: Great Adventures, Amazing Amusement Park, Happy Traveler, Crazy Carnival Games, and Quirky Creations.

Each unit includes 7-8 lessons and 6-10 hours of content. Kids can complete lessons using real-world Lego bricks as well as an associated mobile application.

In a press release, Lego Education provided more information about Spike Essential:

“SPIKE Essential offers playful learning experiences in which students solve problems through storytelling. The cross-curricular STEAM solution includes familiar LEGO building elements, four new Minifigures with different characteristics and personalities that are relatable to students, and standards-aligned learning units using everyday themes. The characters and stories not only engage students in STEAM learning, but also foster social-emotional skills. With 50 combined hours of educational content, SPIKE Essential combines age-appropriate icon- and word-based block coding with simple hardware – including an intelligent Hub, motors, a Light Matrix, and a Color Sensor – to bring Steam concepts to life with the LEGO® Education Spike™ App.”

The Lego Education Spike Essential Set is now available on Lego’s website for $274.95. A single set can support up to two students.
