We were very surprised when it arrived since we just ordered it two days before they started shipping (and they were taking preorders for months).
We purchased the education kit (base kit plus expansion set). Both came, but only the basic kit has a tote….the expansion set does not have a tote.
We already had a pre-release version of the software installed on our PC…but it saw the updated and loaded the latest and greatest software and when we plugged in the brick is saw it was not up to date and updated it too (much better than old software for EV3’s)
Again a reminder that SPIKE is NOT replacing EV3’s for FLL and Lego is NOT phasing out EV3’s at this time….both SPIKE and EV3’s will be supported by Lego and are legal for FLL!
We’re excited to share that this year, we’ll be making FIRST®Tech Challenge Jump Start available early, exclusively for graduating members of FIRST LEGO League teams.
Jump Start will provide rookie teams with
their kit of parts earlier than the normal competitive season timeline.
Teams will also be the first to have access to the new REV Control Hub,
which will be introduced into our storefront next season. The new
Control Hub combines all the power of the current Android handset with
the Expansion Hub into a single device.
As in previous years, Jump Start teams will
purchase registration for the 2019/2020 (current year) season and
receive a grant for their 2020/2021 (next season) registration.
