This kit includes 5 x LEGO Education BricQ Motion Prime Set (LEG45400), and 5 x LEGO Education SPIKE Prime Set (LEG45678).
LEGO Education BricQ Motion Prime engages high school students in years 6-8 in STEAM learning as they experiment with forces, motion and interactions in the context of sports. BricQ Motion Prime provides easy, hands-on learning experiences that spark cool “aha” moments, as students set LEGO bricks in motion without the need for technology.
This introductory STEAM experience offers 1 unit of 7 x 45-minutes, standards-aligned lessons that include everything from engaging videos and printable worksheets that excite and inspire students, to lesson plans, teacher videos, assessment rubrics and math and language arts extensions that support and scaffold teachers. BricQ Motion Prime is supported by a comprehensive professional development program.
The 562-piece BricQ Motion Prime Core set includes an extensive selection of special elements, such as gears, wheels, balls, weights and pneumatics, 4 mini-figures and more, while colour-coded sorting trays ease the building process and make tidying up at the end of class quick and efficient. Replacement elements are also included, as well as printed building instructions with inspirational ideas that help students discover physical science in action.
LEGO Education SPIKE Prime is the STEAM learning tool for students in grades 5-8, with a focus on developing skills in creativity, collaboration and critical thinking. Combining new and familiar building elements in a refreshing new colour scheme, easy-to-use hardware, and intuitive drag-and-drop coding language based on Scratch, SPIKE Prime continuously engages students through playful learning activities to think critically and to solve complex problems – regardless of their learning level.
LEGO Education SPIKE Prime offers four units, each with a specific theme focus. All units are designed to develop critical thinking skills through complex, engaging and personally relevant STEAM challenges. The lessons within each unit will become increasingly challenging and all include teacher support, introduction videos, curriculum links, extension exercises and more. The SPIKE App, based on the most widely used programming language in teaching – Scratch – can be used on both iOS and Android tablets, and Windows 10.
