More than just a robot!

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


At less than US$50 each (and just US$33 each for a full class set) and with more built-in sensors than any robot in its class, Edison robots are the perfect addition to any classroom. Let every student get truly hands-on with their very own robot without sacrificing your budget.


Spark your students’ imaginations! Edison robots are modular and easily expandable using LEGO bricks or our own EdCreate creator’s kit. Enrich your students STEM education experience and promote creative problem solving through interactive engineering and programming projects.


Make robot programming fun, easy to learn, and powerful with multiple programming languages. From drag-and-drop block-based coding through to text-based coding with Python, Edison can be programmed using any of our educational robot programming languages.


Integrating Edison into your classroom is easy with our free teaching resources designed to help educators unlock robotics and coding. All of our resources, including lesson plans, teacher’s guides and student worksheet sets, are free to download and licenced under Creative Commons.

Easy to use

Using the six pre-programmed robot activities set by barcodes, children as young as four are able to learn the basics of computational thinking and computer programming. With Getting Started guides and resources for every level, everyone can be a programmer with Edison!

Built to last

Ready to use out of the box, the Edison robot is a powerful, engaging tool for teaching students computational thinking and computer programming in a hands-on way. Edison robots are designed to withstand the classroom environment, making them the perfect tool for all your STEAM projects.

Learn more about Edison

“I have to say, they are the perfect solution for me. I teach pre-service teachers. In our footprint, schools are low on funding, and low on expertise. I have funded myself, and played with a variety of robots for lower primary, including some quite expensive models. Without a doubt Edison is most user-friendly, versatile and of course cost-effective”

- Wendy Fasso, Central Queensland University, Australia

“I've been running camps here in Ireland using Edison robots and the children are delighted with the robots and are really enjoying playing with them. They are amazed with what the robots can do and love designing their own programs. It's great to see how imaginative they are.” 

- Sinéad Diggin, Ireland 

“I have been so thrilled watching my students come up with creative ways to work with the two Edisons we have. They are in the process of creating a video to share with our parent community to convince them this is a great way to get students engaged in this type of technology.”

- Yolanda Gonzales, Boise school District, USA

“In the classrooms, the robots are gradually filtering through all classes. All teachers have been hugely impressed by the enjoyment the students experience as well as the higher order thinking skills that are used to solve challenges that students encounter with the Edison robots.”

- Julia Creasy, Coolbinia Primary School, Australia

“I am very impressed with the Edison and how they have engaged the students in my class.”

- Andrew P., Primary Teacher, Australia 

The what and the why: pair programming in education

The what and the why: pair programming in education

Done right, pair programming can lead to great educational outcomes for students that reach far beyond the ability to write code. Learn what pair programming is and the top 5 reasons to give it a try.

Heads up

The Australian Federal Parliament has passed a law that extends goods and services tax (GST) to low value imports of physical goods imported by consumers from 1 July 2018.

This means that all customers purchasing Edison robots and accessories with an Australian shipping address must now pay GST. The GST will be automatically added to your purchase and show as a line item on your invoice.

We've detected that you are in Australia, so we wanted to let you know that we have changed your settings to view our Australian site, which displays GST inclusive pricing.
