Meet the latest educational product in the Edison suite, EdSketch!

Edison V3 with EdSketch
EdSketch is a two-pack expansion kit, which includes the EdSketch Pen Holder and EdSketch Marker Pens. EdSketch enriches students’ STEAM education experience, incorporating art into programming projects.

The EdSketch Marker Pen is a dry erase marker designed to work on whiteboards and paper. The Pen Holder easily attaches to the Edison robot and holds the Pen Marker in place, thus allowing students to unlock their artistic potential. 

EdSketch is a perfect addition to the Edison programming and robotics curriculum to promote creativity and many open-ended challenge ideas.


These free, downloadable resources can help you get the most out of EdSketch.

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.
