All in One Box
The heart of the SPIKE Prime system is the programmable Hub. This advanced yet simple-to-use, brick-shaped device features 6 input/output ports, 5×5 light matrix, Bluetooth connectivity, a speaker, 6-axis gyro and a rechargeable battery.
The SPIKE Prime Set also includes highly accurate motors and sensors that, together with a large variety of colourful LEGO building elements, let students design and build fun robots, dynamic devices and other interactive models.
With many attachment points on the Hub, motors and sensors plus new, large building elements mean students spend less time building and more time learning.
The durable storage box and 2 sorting trays also mean time spent setting up and clearing away is kept to a minimum, while the smaller trays are ideal when desk space is limited.
