Spike Prime Makes Creative Coders and Creative Solutions

Help me give my students this new robot from LEGO so they can explore the challenges of building and coding.

My Students

My students are a very curious bunch. They have and use technology but they have limited opportunities to understand how to make technology work for them, better yet, how to make technology do various kinds of work that robotics and computer science can do well.

They are eager to learn about new things and will step up to the challenges presented to them.

They want to be inspired. They also want the chance to have creative play experiences with technology that can be applied to coding, science, music, and the arts.

My Project

This new set from LEGO will be a hit with my middle school students who can use a boost in their creative problem solving skills. LEGO has packed this set with various bricks and pieces that allow them to develop creative solutions to various challenges in the supplied curriculum.

Students will build confidence through the hands-on experience of arranging the configuration of LEGO's colorful pieces, motors and sensors as they work together to develop social skills.

The scratch coding will make the projects more accessible and allow their creative minds to bring what they make to life. We will be using the robot in after school clubs and lunchroom challenges to maximize the impact at our school. We will also use the robot in our engineering class as they work through the inventions challenges in the LEGO units.
