“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

STEAM learning lends itself naturally to project and problem-based learning (PBL). But what’s the value of PBL for students? And what do you need to bring this approach into your classroom?
Many teachers fear – and avoid – teaching STEAM, especially the technology component. A growing body of research shows that the key to getting teachers teaching tech is surprisingly straightforward: professional development teacher training.
