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.

A curates egg?

Or, good in parts. There's no doubting the price or the capability of the Edison, it's all very good. But there is an issue with using the audio programming cable. I thought I had a faulty cable at first but now I'm not so sure. When you program with it, you should hear the sound from the robot itself. I don't. On checking the forum, it seems that quite a few people have great difficulty using this old fashioned system to program their Edison's. The headphone output on most computers just isn't loud enough it seems. Without the cable plugged in I get a very good output from my speakers, with the cable plugged in, the robot gets no data at all. I haven't finished my testing yet but some users have resorted to an amplifier in order to be able to program Edison. I want my seven year old grandson to use this, it's not a good omen.
