LEGO has unveiled its latest building system aimed at classrooms. The new building kit is called LEGO Education SPIKE Prime, and it is a hands-on learning approach for the classroom aimed at STEM education. The Spike app is used for programming robotic creations that students make with the kit and uses the SCRATCH coding language.

Aimed at grade 6-8 students, the app includes lessons aligned with existing educational standards, and many of them can be finished in a 45-minute session. LEGO says that makes it easy to integrate Spike into the classroom.
