Explore more with the Edison robot
Edison offers hours of fun and engaging STEM learning activities for kids at every stage of their robotics and computer science journey. These activity resources can be used on their own or in addition to the lesson plans designed for using Edison in the classroom setting.
Enrich your kids’ STEM education experience through interactive engineering and programming projects by using Edison together with LEGO bricks.
Edison works with any LEGO brick compatible building system, including the EdCreate robot creator’s kit, which lets you create an incredible range of programmable robotic projects. Use EdCreate to build 5 different projects, invent solutions to open-ended design challenges or make your own incredible creation!
Get started using Edison by learning what the robot can do through self-paced EdBook activity books.
Build familiarity with the Edison robot’s sensors and capabilities by learning how to control the robot with pre-set barcodes. Then kickstart your computer programming adventures by programming Edison with different programming languages.
The free-to-download EdBooks are a great way to introduce robotics and programming basics to beginners and anyone new to using Edison. Each illustrated EdBook progresses through the main concepts of controlling or programming the robots and is perfect for use at home or as extensions to the classroom lesson plans.
The EdMat activity may is an A1 size (23in x 33in) mat perfect for getting started with Edison and for ongoing use as a test mat for all your Edison creations and programs.
The free-to-download EdMat is designed to make running robot activities such as line following and bounce in borders with Edison simple to set up and loads of fun. The EdMat includes six barcodes that activate pre-installed programs including ‘follow a torch’, ‘line tracking’ and ‘sumo wrestle’. Using EdMats in the classroom makes it easy to set up ‘robot testing stations’ for students to try out their programs.
