Expand, create, invent: Edison robots work with LEGO bricks
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. Bricks can be attached to the top and bottom of the Edison robot and pegs can be attached to the robot’s sides. When Edison’s wheels are removed, cross axles can be used in the powered sockets.
LEGO bricks can be attached to the top of the Edison robot using the two strips of 2 x 8 connecting studs.
There are three types of holes on the side of Edison: pin holes, stud holes, and cross axle sockets.The three pin holes suit full depth pegs and the four stud holes suit shorter pegs. When Edison’s wheels are removed, LEGO cross axles can be inserted to create your own robotics inventions with motorised moving parts.
The underside of the Edison robot has a clear, removable skid at the front. Taking the skid out of the robot allows Edison to be used as a flat base.
There are also two rows of 2 x 8 stud sockets on the underside of Edison for connecting LEGO bricks or attaching one Edison robot onto another robot. Connecting multiple Edisons on top of each other allows you to design, build and program new robot inventions.
Build even more with Edison and EdCreate
Edison robots combined with the EdCreate Edison robot creator’s kit lets you create an incredible range of programmable robotic projects. The EdCreate 5-in-1 expansion pack construction system is specifically designed for Edison robots. The EdCreate system is designed with studs and holes which are compatible with the Edison robot and any other LEGO brick compatible building system and can be expanded with other LEGO brick compatible building system parts.
Use Edison robots and EdCreate to complete five different EdBuild projects.
Each EdBuild project requires progressive levels of coding capabilities and comes with a complete set of educational resources, making them a perfect addition to the Edison programming and robotics curriculum. Or turn your kids’ imaginations loose with a wide range of engineering and design challenges, including the EdCreate EdChallenges!
Building with Edison and EdCreate gives students meaningful, engaging opportunities to find STEM applications to real-world scenarios and promotes creative problem-solving.
