Edison Education

Lesson plans and teaching resources for the Edison robot

Getting your class started on a STEM education journey like no other is easy using the Edison robot with our free teaching resources. 

The versatility of the Edison robot makes it a brilliant tool for teaching a wide range of STEM subjects including computer science, coding, electronics and engineering. Our teaching resources are designed to help educators unlock robotics and coding to get the most out of Edison in their classrooms.

All of the resources, including the lesson plans, teacher’s guides and student activities & worksheet sets, are free to use and licensed under Creative Commons so they can be adapted, modified and translated.

What are you teaching?

The Edison robot is the perfect base for teaching a wide range of STEM topics, including robotics and computer programming.

Programmable robots, like the Edison robot, are amazing motivators and keep kids engaged and hungry to learn more.  

All of the Edison robotics programming languages have free teaching resources to help your students progress their computational thinking, robotics, coding and STEM education journeys using Edison each step of the way.  

EdBlocks – block-based coding

Introducing students to coding and robotics for the first time? Working with students aged 8-12 years old? Looking for a fully graphical programming language? EdBlocks is perfect for introducing anyone to programming, and the EdBlocks teaching resources are ideal for students aged 8 to 12 years old.

EdWare – hybrid-graphical programming

Working with students ready for the next step in their coding adventure? Need a language which combines the ease of drag-and-drop graphical icons with increased functionality from text-based entry?

EdWare, the original Edison robot programming language, is easy to learn and offers a robust next-step in coding education.
