Meet Edison

Edison is a little robot, with lots of potential.  From pre-programmed barcodes to drag and drop graphical programming and even the ability to use Python (a relatively simple programming language), there are lots of EdVentures this starter robot can take your students on. You can even program Edison to be controlled using a television remote! This workshop introduced educators to Edison using The Wild Robot by Peter Brown as a guide for EdVentures and interactions with Edison.
