According tomedia reports, the new LEGO Education SPIKE Prime has a whole new building block (actually a few new parts, but one of the most critical). The new LEGO Education Package was released today (August 31, local time) at the beginning of the 2020/2021 school year to prepare for STEAM, coding and a variety of LEGO robot adventures. It also has a new LEGO element, the Integrator Brick. In addition, this season has introduced new resources for educators and parents of students.
In the fall LEGO Education will offer new training courses for schools and will include a new SPIKE Prime Training Trackers unit. If you’re an educator or a parent at home facilitating students, you can also check out LEGO’s new class management portal. In response, LEGO officials said:
Built for two student teams, the LEGO Education SpieTh prime package consists of 528 blocks and is the latest, rolling, powerful STEAM learning tool in the LEGO universe. It is designed for students in grades 6-8 and includes an understanding of the way to use Python’s text-based encoding. In addition, you can let it dance.
A number of new elements will be found in this package, including technic Frames’ new size, the new Sheel Design, the new Ball and Castor, a Biscuit, a new Wile Clip, a Technic Base Plate and a finely tuned GEAR.
Although you’ve seen the Integrator Brick building blocks before, it’s clear that the new version seems to be more popular with users.
