The Edison robot is a powerful, engaging tool for teaching kids STEM, computational thinking and computer programming in a hands-on way.
Robots bring computer science to life. Unlike on-screen only coding, robots let kids really see their programs working. Programmable robots provide kids with instant, tangible feedback by allowing them to test in the real world as they go.
Using Edison, students can learn the fundamentals of coding as they progress through three different programming languages, including drag-and-drop icon-based programming all the way through to coding in a vertical text-based language.
