Simple barcode activities can be used to power up Edison's capabilities. Students may progress through three distinct programming languages as their abilities improve.
The Edison robots are a complete STEAM teaching tool that bring coding to life. The robots may be used as the programmable base for an incredible variety of engineering and STEM projects thanks to Edison's expandable robotics system, which works with the EdCreate construction kit and any other LEGO brick compatible building system.
The Edison STEAM Program is a term based program that lasts for an 8 week term. It allows for 4 classes of students to participate in 8 x 1 hour sessions based around coding and programming the Edison robot as well as several design and invention challenges modelling the Engineering Design Cycle.
All challenges and coding principles taught in the Edison STEAM Program link to the Australian Curriculum.
