I'm a K-8th grade teacher in Michigan with 10 Edison robots & creative kits. We've had them for about 10 days. So exciting! So far 2nd, 4th, 7th & 8th graders have been coding them using EdBlocks and EdScratch along with a few of the EdBlock lessons.
EdComm Cables: I've already had fail because one of the little gray nubs broke off. I contacted Edison and they are sending me new ones. We are trying to be careful with them, but they are kids. Has anyone else had this issue?
EdMat: I'm trying to get this printed in the US. Since the size was not normal (US specs) I couldn't place the order online. So I called Office Depot and they told me to send them the file so they could decide how to go about it. They replied that - For a print of this size, we would have to print it on a 24"x36" paper and then trim it down to the requested size of 23.2"x33.1". Prices for Each Poster 24"x36" print on 55# matte paper: $24.99 & Trimming to 23.2"x33.1": $1.56.
In the opinion of those of you who have used it, would it be worth it to print one (out of my own pocket) to try? Any other ideas to get them printed cheaper?
