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.
Meet EdCreate: the Edison robot creator’s kit. EdCreate and Edison robots make it easy to enrich students’ education with interactive engineering and programming projects that really put the E into ‘STEM’.
These 6 simple tricks are easy to learn and remember, but are key to keeping Edison in great shape to help you get the most out of your Edison robot for all your coding and robotics projects.
Setting up Edison correctly right at the start helps you and your students get into coding and robotics sooner and with less frustration. Learn how to set up for success with Edison every time.
If you are using a Windows computer to program Edison, you need to disable sound enhancements. Why? Sound enhancements and Edison downloads just aren’t compatible! Learn how to disable these enhancements on your device.
EdBlocks and Edison allow you to teach a lot more than ‘just’ coding. Here are five awesome things to try teaching your students using EdBlocks.
Meet EdBlocks: the horizontal robotics programming language made up entirely of graphical blocks for the Edison robot. A drag-and-drop block-based system, EdBlocks is intuitive and fun, even for younger users. Best of all, EdBlocks is absolutely free!
A new firmware update is now available for V1 Edison robots. You can get the update now by following the step-by-step guide in our firmware checker. This update is absolutely free and will let you access even more features using your Edison robot!
