This is a mixed beginner/intermediate class for ages 8-14.
The Robotics club is a fun way to meet and work with other students while learning about programming logic, coding and construction concepts. Programmable robots provide students with an instant, hands on way of interacting with the physical or digital world.
Students will discover robotics as they work with Edison, the LEGO® compatible, programmable Bot!
The Edison robot is a powerful, engaging tool for teaching kids computational thinking and computer programming in a hands-on way. With built-in sensors, lights, sounds and autonomous behaviour capabilities, Edison makes true robotics education accessible to students of all ages.
Edison works with any LEGO brick compatible building system, including the EdCreate robot creator’s kit. Bricks can be attached to the top and bottom of the Edison robot and pegs can be attached to the robot’s sides. When Edison’s wheels are removed, cross axles can be used in the powered sockets.
Edison’s robotics capabilities can be unlocked with ease through simple barcode programs. Students can then progress their robotics, coding and STEM education journeys using Edison with three progressive programming languages.
