“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
Meet EdScratch: the vertical block-based programming language for the Edison robot based on Scratch. EdScratch is easy to learn, fun, and offers an amazing platform for computer science education.
Bringing a mix of disciplines and approaches into coding unlocks the potential of computer science for kids, making lessons more engaging, and more fun! Try it for yourself with these 5 STEAM activities using Edison robots and EdBlocks.
The task: attach a pen to an Edison robot using EdCreate so the robot can draw a shape. It might sound simple, but this little challenge can teach a whole lot about engineering design.
