LEGO® Education SPIKE™ Prime at Bett Show (London) 2020

LEGO® Education SPIKE™ Prime at Bett Show 2020

LEGO® Education SPIKE™ Prime generated huge interest and was the highlight for many visitors at this year’s Bett Show in London, one of the world’s most important education shows. The LEGO Education stand was packed from the time the show opened until the last minute of the last day. We were visited by huge numbers of teachers, VIPs and influencers, and were interviewed for Tech & Learning, Edu Week, BBC Radio, Brick Fanatics and the EdTech Podcast. Our trade partners provided further hands-on experiences with workshops from Creative Hut and Raising Robots.

The keynote speech by LEGO Education’s president, Esben Stærk Jørgensen, was extremely well received. He showed compelling data underpinning the strong message that connects hands-on learning through play with building students’ confidence, improved STEAM skills and lifelong learning.
