Last academic year Coding Success reached more than 300 schools with free teacher training, lesson plans, and LEGO Education SPIKE Prime kits.

The programme is aimed at eight to 14-year-olds attending state schools, with a particular focus on under-represented groups. It aims to find and inspire the next generation of scientists, engineers, and technicians.

Developed by education charity The Smallpeice Trust and Raising Robots, a LEGO Education Partner, the programme is funded by BAE Systems, the Royal Navy, and Royal Air Force.

It tasks pupils with a virtual humanitarian aid mission on an isolated volcanic island in the South Atlantic Ocean. Throughout the Earthquake Rescue Mission, pupils have to successfully code their SPIKE Prime Robot Rescue Vehicle to react to an earthquake.
