Who likes to play with robot toys and building kits?

LEGO® robot building toys are the perfect gift for boys and girls of all ages. Even if it seems like your child doesn’t have an obvious interest in coding, their curiosity will almost certainly be sparked once they get the chance to build a robot of their own.

Nearly any hobby or interest your child loves to engage in can act as relevant entry points to robotics and programming. Whether it’s kittens, music, remote-controlled cars, science fiction gadgets, or they generally just enjoy taking things apart to find out how they work and put them back together, your child can be inspired to create a robot that reflects their unique personality and interests, with speech, songs, sounds, lights, movements and interactions.

Hands-on STEAM learning fun for primary school students!

LEGO® Education SPIKE™ Essential gets primary school students excited about STEAM concepts. This 449-piece set combines a selection of technological components with familiar LEGO® bricks and relatable minifigures within a playful, narrative-based learning experience.

Learn to code at home with a LEGO® set

LEGO® Education SPIKE™ Essential Set sparks kids’ imaginations, fosters creativity and helps them develop valuable coding skills.

What can you build with LEGO® robots – and how?

Anything you can imagine. With LEGO® robots, your child will quickly learn how coding skills are used in robotics and how to incorporate these skills in their own robots, machines and designs. The programming software is super easy to use. Simply drag and drop intuitive icons and coding blocks to add movement, functions, timing and interactions into a chain, press ‘play’ and see what happens. That’s all it take to make your child a coding ninja in no time.

If your child is not ready to start building robot chickens or dinosaurs to take over the world, they can start with the easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions that come with all LEGO robots.

What’s the best LEGO® robot toy for your child?

Bright colors, kid-friendly designs and drag-and-drop coding tools make LEGO® Education SPIKE™ Prime appealing and exciting for younger students! And with more than 40 guided lessons, step-by-step instructions and the intuitive LEGO® SPIKE™ Prime App, getting started is a snap!

Kids build robots – and STEAM confidence

The LEGO® Education SPIKE™ Prime system is centered around a programmable Hub with 6 input/output ports, a 5x5 light matrix, Bluetooth connectivity, a speaker, a 6-axis gyro and a rechargeable battery. Students combine highly accurate motors and sensors with colorful LEGO elements and an intuitive coding platform to design and build robots, dynamic devices and other interactive models. Designed with grades 6-8 in mind, the 45-minute lesson modules incorporate most aspects of the STEAM curriculum.
