The LEGO® Education SPIKE™ Prime Set is the go-to STEAM learning tool for grade 6-8 students.

Over the two weeks, my student Wyatt and I were lucky enough to play with SPIKE Prime, which brings together LEGO bricks, a programmable, multi-port Hub, and sensors and motors, all powered by the engaging SPIKE App, which is based on the Scratch coding language. The kit also includes 32 lesson plans. It is 5 out of 5 Stars! Wyatt gave 10/10! We both loved SPIKE Prime. It is easily the best LEGO education product available. SPIKE Prime is fun, engaging for students, and as a teacher, I love that I can use SPIKE for a variety of lessons, even beyond its 32 premade lesson plans. (techlearning.com)

Although Spike Prime's target audience is middle school kids, it's also a great tool for parents to become involved with their children's curriculum and learn a bit about coding and STEAM education. I can also see Spike Prime being a fun toy for geeks, Lego fans, or anyone who likes to tinker with tech. It's expensive, which is why Lego Education considers Spike Prime a classroom tool rather than a consumer product. (businessinsider.com)
