Use educational affordances of robotics to create CS-STEM opportunities for all learners


Coding and Computational Thinking with LEGO® SPIKE Prime

This curriculum is currently in development. The Carnegie Mellon Robotics Academy is collaborating with over 30 educators from around the world to iteratively produce and refine this brand-new curriculum. A portion of the lessons is now available through Coding and Computational Thinking with LEGO SPIKE Prime. 

The Coding and Computational Thinking with LEGO SPIKE Prime curriculum provides a structured sequence of programming activities in real-world project-based contexts. The projects are designed to get students thinking about the patterns and structure of not just robotics, but also programming and problem-solving more generally. This curriculum includes videos, animations, and step-by-step lessons designed to help learners foster Computational Thinking using the SPIKE Prime hardware and SPIKE programming app.
