The EdCreate system can be used with Edison robots to complete five EdBuild projects:
- the EdTank
- the EdDigger
- the EdRoboClaw
- the EdCrane
- the EdPrinter
The EdBuild projects require progressive levels of coding capabilities, making them a perfect addition to the Edison programming and robotics curriculum.
EdCreate can also be used in a wide range of open-ended engineering, design and programming challenges. Open-ended projects, including the EdChallenges, promote creative problem solving and give students opportunities to find STEM applications to real-world scenarios.
About the EdCreate – Edison robot creator’s kit
The Edison robot creator’s kit is a construction system consisting of 115 interlocking building blocks, pegs, gears, and other parts. The individual pieces are designed with studs and holes which are compatible with Edison robots and any other LEGO brick compatible building system.
One kit can be used to create five different EdBuilds and a range of other engineering and design challenges. The kit can also be expanded with other LEGO brick compatible building system parts.
These free, downloadable resources can help you get the most out of EdCreate.
The teacher’s guide complements the EdBuilds and EdChallenges, providing teachers and instructors with:
- supplementary supporting information about the EdBuilds,
- activity extension ideas,
- programming projects, and
- further information on using the kit in the classroom environment.
Spark your student’s imaginations! These free-form challenges are open-ended engineering design projects perfect for getting students to think creatively, be resourceful and inventive. The EdChallenges are designed to encourage creative problem solving, exploration, and the tangible application of learned skills.
All of the EdChallenges require the use of an Edison robot. Any of the components included in the creator’s kit, as well as additional Edison robots and any other materials selected by students, may also be used.
