Usually, basic programming skills are taught to middle-aged and older students through IT lessons. For this purpose, often used programming languages with built-in visual environment like Scratch, designed specifically for children. At the same time, tangible programming environments are also being developed that allow children to apply basic skills to control real robots. For example, the same Scratch has a built-in tool that helps in the training of robots, and Google introduced the construction toys for tangible programming a couple of years ago.

The new LEGO® set includes 523 parts: both regular bricks and parts from the Technic series (for example, gears, blocks with sensors and motors). For each device, it is possible to create structures: robots can be connected to it using USB, and it also supports Bluetooth; The station also has a built-in gyroscope. You can manage the created system using Scratch-application with a simple interface.

The whole set will cost $330 (USD), and Shipping begins in early 2020. For each set, the company promises to provide several 45-minute video tutorials which can be used in class.
