Welcome to your EdVenture with Edison robots!

Educational robotics with Edison

Congratulations on becoming the proud owner of Edison. We are so excited for you to begin your coding and robotics journey.

On this page you will find information to get you set up and on your way to an exciting STEAM EdVenture using Edison!

The Edison robot is a powerful, fun and engaging tool for teaching computational thinking, computer programming and robotics. The information on this page will help you to get the most out of Edison, including all of the robot’s built-in sensors, outputs and motors. Remember, Edison is a tool designed to introduce you to the amazing world of coding and robotics – don’t forget to have fun!

Getting started with Edison begins with learning about your robot’s capabilities and setting up your device for programming fun.

Download the free Getting started with Edison guide for a step-by-step walkthrough.

Choose your own EdVenture!

Barcodes

Barcode programming is a great place for everyone to start their Edison robot journey. Suitable for ages 4+, you can have Edison avoiding obstacles or following a flashlight in seconds using these special barcodes – no coding experience necessary!

Coding

Edison can be programmed using any of our educational robot programming languages. You can easily use the same Edison robot with different languages – just open the programming software application you want, connect your Edison and get started!

Edison robot lesson activities

Lessons

From coding to computational thinking to STEM, Edison makes learning fun and engaging. With lesson plans, project ideas, activity sheets and teacher guides all available free to download, no matter what you are teaching, our resources can help each step of the way.

Inputs, outputs and sensors

Without sensors, robots are helpless (and a little useless). Sensors let robots detect and respond to the world around them. Learn about each of Edison’s various parts, including what each one is, what it does, why it is important, and how you can use it with your students.

Hour of Code

These fun activities are a great place to build enthusiasm and start teaching coding with Edison. The self-contained activities are perfect for beginners, anyone looking for a stand-alone activity or those unsure about which coding language is right for their class.

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.

You can change back to the GLOBAL SITE at any time using the link in the top left of the page.

OK got it!    Take me to the GLOBAL SITE instead
