Lego Spike Prime is the coolest way to learn engineering since 1998

April 08, 2019

With its bright, flat cables hanging out everywhere, it may look like some retro computer cobbled together in a 1980s garage in the colorway of a 1990s shoe, but this is Lego’s latest, most technologically advanced set. It just happens to be aesthetically inspired by Lego’s very first robotics kits. Its name is Spike Prime, and it’s been designed to teach engineering to kids in sixth to eighth grades while keeping it compatible with all Lego bricks. Sadly, you won’t be able to buy it in stores.
