We hope you saw the exciting news that LEGO® Education has just announced their newest STEAM learning solution – SPIKE™ Prime. You can see more information about SPIKE Prime on their social media channels and website.
The SPIKE Prime kits will be shipping July or Aug 2019.
SPIKE Prime will be approved for use in FIRST® LEGO® League starting in August 2019, and will participate alongside Mindstorms EV3, NXT, and RCX.
It does NOT mean that you have to buy new robots, it just means that teams can use them if they wish. Really when was the last time you saw an RCX robot at an FLL event (do you even know what that is)?
Check out the fact sheet HERE.
[editor note: I was on a conference call with LEGO on 4/3 and was told that SPIKE does NOT replace the EV3. Both products will continue to be supported by LEGO]
