|Overview:||The Edison Educational Robot Kit is a magnificent Robotics and Coding toy. Named to reflect an "inventive spirit", Edison Robots are the result of a genuine passion for innovation and a vision to make electronics, engineering, robotics and programming accessible to as many people as possible. This LEGO® compatible modular and easily expandable educational robot is safe, reusable, expandable and robust, providing kids with an opportunity to experiment and grow their knowledge, explore their imagination, cultivate their innovativeness and have fun without expensive tools and excessive investment. Includes robot, batteries, cable and bar code scan sheets.As the world becomes more technical, STEM education is high priority. Research shows that introducing STEM early plays a key role in cognitive development and capabilities in these subjects later in life. Much of math and science instruction is abstract and theoretical, robots like this kit are a great way to engage kids in learning these abstract and complex STEM subjects.Edison Robots are programmable utilizing multiple FREE languages - visual and text based.EdBlocks– a fully graphical robot programming language that is super easy to use. A drag-and-drop block-based system, EdBlocks is intuitive and fun, even for younger users. Perfect for introducing anyone to programming,EdScratch– a hybrid graphical robot programming software (similar to Scratch), combines drag-and-drop graphical icons with increased functionality from text-based entry, making programming fun and easy to learn!EdPy– the easy to learn, high readability and very popular Python programming language. EdPy teaches a real life programming language and makes text-based programming fun and easy!Along Edison's face are Lego® compatible plates that allow the Edison robots to be scaled up into sophisticated creations, or even combined and doubled up for a more complicated system.Th Edison robot is powered by a set of four (4) AAA batteries (included) and interacts with the world via infra-red (IR) transmitters and receivers, line tracking, barcode reading, playing sounds and music, plus sound detection. It’s also equipped with two motors with variable speeds, left and right red LED lights and three control buttons. One Edison can communicate with another over IR, with the units also able to be programmed by and controlled with TV and DVD remotes.Built to last, this robot is rugged and tough, and incredibly enough can still function after being driven over by a car!|
