Lesson plans and teaching resources for the Edison robot

Getting your class started on a STEM education journey like no other is easy using the Edison robot with our free teaching resources. 

The versatility of the Edison robot makes it a brilliant tool for teaching a wide range of STEM subjects including computer science, coding, electronics and engineering. Our teaching resources are designed to help educators unlock robotics and coding to get the most out of Edison in their classrooms.

All of the resources, including the lesson plans, teacher’s guides and student activities & worksheet sets, are free to use and licenced under Creative Commons so they can be adapted, modified and translated.

“We taught nearly 50 students last summer and the Edison robots are FANTASTIC. The best devices I’ve seen for really getting the kids excited about robotics. The lesson plans and guides are AMAZING.”

– Jahi Awakoaiye — Advanced Math, Computer Technology, Humanities and Science teacher at Ile Omode School, USA

What are you teaching?

The Edison robot is the perfect base for teaching a wide range of STEM topics, including robotics and computer programming. Programmable robots, like the Edison robot, are amazing motivators and keep kids engaged and hungry to learn more.  

All of the Edison robotics programming languages have free teaching resources to help your students progress their computational thinking, robotics, coding and STEM education journeys using Edison each step of the way.

Looking for more help getting started with Edison? Check out these independent training organisations which offer professional development for teachers and other teacher-training using Edison robots. 

EdBlocks – block-based coding

Introducing students to coding and robotics for the first time? Working with students aged 7+ years old? Looking for a fully graphical programming language?

EdBlocks is perfect for introducing anyone to programming, and the EdBlocks teaching resources are ideal for students aged 7 to 10 years old.

EdScratch – Scratch-based coding with Edison

Need a programming language that is easy to learn but still offers a robust platform for computer science education? Working with students aged 10+ years old? Looking for a way to make the transition to using more complex programming structures approachable even with no prior coding experience?

EdScratch combines the ease of drag-and-drop programming with powerful functionality and versatility, perfect for developing solid computer science fundamentals.

EdPy – text-based programming in Python

Ready to introduce students to text-based programming? Looking for a way to introduce Python? Already teaching Python and need a way to make it more accessible to your students?

EdPy, based on the popular computer programming language Python, is a highly versatile text-based programming language for the Edison robot.

EdCreate – interactive engineering and programming projects

Looking to promote creative problem-solving? Need a way to give students experience finding STEM applications to real-world scenarios? Searching for extra programming projects to complement the Edison programming and robotics curriculum?

The EdCreate Edison robot creator’s kit is a 5-in-1 expansion pack construction system is designed to work with the Edison robot. EdCreate enriches students’ STEM education experience through a wide range of engineering, design and programming challenges.

“I am very impressed by your lesson plans. I have a student leader working some of them and he is having a great time.”

– Lee Nicholson — Computer Science teacher at Alpharetta High School, USA

Looking for EdWare? EdWare was the original language for the Edison robot. EdWare has since been retired, replaced by our three other languages: EdBlocks, EdScratch and EdPy. You can still access information about EdWare here.

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.
