LEGO Education SPIKE Essential Set
LEGO® Education SPIKE™ Essential gets primary school pupils excited about hands-on STEAM learning.
This playful, narrative-based learning experience is part of the LEGO Learning System and encourages pupils to investigate STEAM concepts, while contributing to literacy, maths and social-emotional development.
This 449-piece set comes with 4 mini figures with their own personalities, who act as storytellers to make problem-solving relatable to all pupils. Icon- and word-based block coding with simple hardware – including an intelligent 2-port Hub, 2 Small Motors, a Light Matrix and a Colour Sensor – also bring pupils’ creations to life.
The set also includes a colourful selection of familiar and age-appropriate LEGO bricks, replacement elements and a durable storage box with colour-coded sorting trays to ease the building process and classroom management. Part of the LEGO Learning System, SPIKE Essential offers 5 units of 8 x 45-minute, curriculum-aligned STEAM lessons. Each lesson includes comprehensive online lesson plans with maths and literacy extensions.
