Edison is a programmable robot designed to be a complete STEM teaching resource for coding and robotics education for students from 4 to 16 years of age.

The Edison robot is a powerful, engaging tool for teaching children computational thinking and computer programming in a hands-on way.

With more built-in sensors than any robot in its class as well as lights, sounds and autonomous behaviour capabilities, Edison makes true robotics education accessible to students of all ages.

Edisons robotics capabilities can be unlocked with ease through simple barcode programs. Students can then progress their robotics, coding and STEM education journeys using Edison with three progressive programming languages. Older students can learn the fundamentals of coding as they progress from drag-and-drop icon-based programming all the way through to coding in a vertical text-based language.

Edison can also be used to build and invent as the programmable base for an incredible range of engineering and STEM projects thanks to Edisons expandable robotics system which works with the EdCreate construction kit and any other LEGO brick compatible building system.

Requires:

  • 4 x AAA Batteries
  • A Computer/Laptop/Tablet/Phone with a standard headphone socket
  • Teach children computational thinking and coding in a hands on and intuitive way.
  • Suitable for use with children from 4 - 16 years of age.

Getting better all the time.

So this is my second review, after a few weeks of playing with my original Edison. Firstly, I have solved all my original problems and concerns. The audio programming isn't the greatest idea but with the correct computer it does work. I have checked out the first two programming systems fairly thoroughly now and they are very straightforward and easy to understand so my grandson has now been bought an Edison of his own. I have also played with the Edcreate kit and I've no doubt he will find it much easier to use than me! I was never a Lego fan. One minor issue here, the original wheels on my first Edison needed very considerable force to remove in order to fit tank tracks to the main unit. No small child or someone with weak hands would have managed this. I don't see any way of solving this other than assistance from someone with very strong wrists. Nonetheless, I'm am very pleased with my own results and look forward to presenting my grandson with a real robot at last. Incidentally, the sounds made by Edison are not loud. I am unable to hear them at all although my son in law assures me that they are indeed there.
