Lego to Discontinue Mindstorms

As reported on, today, LEGO has announced it will discontinue the Mindstorms Educational Robot System in December 2022 in order to refocus on “different areas of the business.”  This news will come as quite a shock to many died-in-the-wool lovers of LEGO Mindstorms educational robot systems. “Meanwhile, Lego will continue to support the SPIKE Prime robot series, which offers similar capabilities as Mindstorms, but aimed squarely at the education market instead of retail.” Shown is an image of one of the latest Mindstorms kits, and a photo of the initial Mindstorms kit from 1998.
