Edison Educational Robot Kit -30 Enough for your whole class!
Now more than ever, STEM education is high priority, as
high-paying jobs in STEM fields are growing, with an
inadequate pipeline of American students to fill them.
***Includes 10 Free Robot coding lesson plans!***
Much of the effort to institute this is aimed towards middle
and high schools, but research shows that introducing
STEM early plays a key role in cognitive development and
capabilities in these subjects later in life.
Much of math and science instruction in schools is abstract
and theoretical, and half the job of a teacher is to engage
kids in learning these abstract and complex STEM subjects.
This Is Where Edison Robot Presented By HamiltonBuhl
For kids, robots are the stuff of the future and science
fiction, they are drawn to them. Unlike memorizing
textbooks and regurgitating information, kids are instantly
engaged and actually want to learn and experiment with
robots. And best of all, they’re not just learning about
robotics, they are learning engineering, math,
programming and general science concepts such as
Named to reflect an "inventive spirit," Edison Robot is the
result of a genuine passion for innovation and a vision to
make electronics, engineering, robotics and programming
accessible to as many people as possible.
These LEGO® compatible educational robots are clean,
safe, reusable, expandable and robust, providing students
Across All Grade Levels, from ages 5+, with a range of
combinations, and possibilities.
Along Edison's face are Lego-compatible plates that allow
the Edison robots to be scaled up into sophisticated
creations, or even combined and doubled up for a more
Each Edison robot features a host of sensors and can be
programmed using a growing number of FREE software
EdBlocks – a fully graphical robot programming language
that is super easy to use. A drag-and-drop block-based
system, EdBlocks is intuitive and fun, even for younger
users. Perfect for introducing anyone to programming,
EdBlocks is ideal for students aged 8 to 12 years old.
EdWare – a hybrid graphical robot programming software
(similar to Scratch), combines drag-and-drop graphical
icons with increased functionality from text-based entry,
making programming fun and easy to learn!
EdPy – the easy to learn, high readability and very popular
Python programming language. EdPy teaches a real life
programming language and makes text-based
programming fun and easy!
Each programmable Edison robot interacts with the world
via infra-red (IR) transmitters and receivers, line tracking,
barcode reading, playing sounds and music, plus sound
detection. It’s also equipped with two motors with variable
speeds, left and right red LED lights and three control
One Edison can communicate with another over IR, with
the units also able to be programmed by and controlled
with TV and DVD remotes.
Each bot is powered by a set of AAA batteries.
These LEGO® compatible robots are designed to provide l
learners with an opportunity to experiment and grow their
knowledge, explore their imagination, cultivate their
innovativeness and have fun without expensive tools and
Affordable and available in single or value-packs for a full
