Kid+Robotics

I need some help. My 8 year old has done everything he can with Lego Boost including all the extra plans, extra books with ideas and inventing his own robots.

He’s frustrated that he can’t add more motors and he’s been learning scratch.

What is the logical next step when this is his special interest? I want to foster it but I don’t want to break the bank.

He wants mindstorms but I’m concerned because the home ev3 robot kit is about to be discontinued. The new set coming out this fall, the Inventor Kit, doesn’t look as exciting and is not compatible with EV3. I’ve spent an awful lot of time on ebay and trying to justify the cost.

It seems like it’s an awkward time to get into mindstorms.

Suggestions?
