Given the recent turn to remote learning, has there been any thought to creating an online simulator?

I’ve bought a set for one class of 34 students that is shared multiple times in a day for 5 sections for a total of 170 students. That worked out great in a physical setting. I don’t believe there is an easy way besides buying 170 robots and giving or mailing each student their own but that won’t be in anyone’s budget next school year.

I understand that may defeat the purpose of having a piece of hardware to manipulate and learn. However, I will have 34 edisons that I can’t use since I can’t provide only 34 the nice experience of programming an edison and exclude others. frown

Hi Eric,

We don’t have an online simulator for Edison at the moment.

We’re aware of the interest in a simulator and our Education team are investigating what is possible.

It’s a shame you aren’t able to send the robots home with students (since you are sharing them between so many students, I appreciate the difficulty this presents). Where that is possible, it is definitely our recommendation, because as you mention, the physicality of manipulating the robot is a part of what makes Edison programming so appealing for students.

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.
