Robotics & Coding
Edison is the small, affordable, programmable classroom robot that is lego compatible and built to last. It includes free programming software ranging from a drag and drop block-based system (suitable for 8 years onwards) to programming based on Python, where students learn the core of a real programming language.
Edison uses sensors and motors to interact with the world and with just three buttons Edison is easy to control. Simply print out some barcodes and drive him across them to activate a range of pre-programmed functions. To start a program press triangle, to stop it press square, to download a new program press the circle once or to read a barcode press circle twice.
Getting started in the classroom is easy with free downloadable robotics lesson plans including student worksheets. Click here to find 5 awesome things you can teach using EdBlocks.
Bee-Bot is an exciting new robot designed for use by young children. This colourful, easy-to-operate, and friendly little robot is a perfect tool for teaching sequencing, estimation, problem-solving, and just having fun!
Using Bee-Bots is play and children love it! Hands on learning involving Investigating, Problem Solving & Sequencing.
Bee-Bot’s simple and child friendly layout is a perfect starting point for teaching control, directional language and programming.
Kids soon forget they are learning to code, and just see programming for exactly what it is: a series of commands that make things happen. And because it’s such fun all the fear of coding quickly vanishes.
Sphero SPRK (and newer SPRK+) is a fantastic tool to teach kids (and yourself) the basics of programming. Children aren’t sat at a desk staring at a screen. They’re running around the room, controlling a hyper-active robot using commands in an entertaining way of learning how to code.
And SPRK grows with the user, even to the extent of showing the raw text-based code for experienced programmers. This SPRK will light a fire under kids’ imaginations, creativity and coding know how.
