What is Edison?

The Edison is a super affordable Programmable Educational Robot is for students of all ages and also for both beginner and experienced robotics enthusiasts. You can buy a single robot and learn computer programming just like other robotics systems which can cost much, much more. Edison is a great resource for teachers as classroom sets are now very affordable for schools - it’s now possible to have one robot per student. Edison is modular and LEGO® compatible. It provides a scalable way to build any size robotic invention. There’s a lot that one Edison Robot can do. Imagine what your students can do with a team of them working together!

Let your students imaginations run wild. Why not make a remote control robot! Edison is great for school education and to teach kids robotics and programming. Lesson plans are provided to help make it easy for teachers to get started.
