Once again, students will be tasked with completing a challenge designed in partnership with a panel of experts using a variety of LEGO Education products, including LEGO Education WeDo 2.0, LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3, and the newest LEGO Education SPIKE Prime and SPIKE Prime Expansion set.

While the branding will change, the program’s impact and experience remain the same.
