About this event

Spike Prime is Lego’s brand new robotics set. Spike uses Scratch based coding, making it easy to program its multiple sensors and motors. You will use loops, conditional operators and variables to problem solve and defeat opponents. The creative design options are endless!

Cost : $ 75

Spike uses visual coding, with special features to access more complex algorithm options, making it suitable for beginner coders and more seasoned programmers. Spike has an integrated 6 axis gyro sensor and add-on pressure, colour and ultrasonic sensors. Intricate movements are managed via the 3 motors and the hub facilitates light and graphics via the LED matrix.

In this full day workshop, kids will learn to use loops, conditional operators and variables to problem solve and manipulate results.

All workshops are delivered by accredited educators with experience in science, engineering, programming and robotics.
