The EdCreate Edison robot creator’s kit is a 5-in-1 expansion pack construction system. It is designed to work with the Edison robot. EdCreate enriches students’ STEM education experience through interactive engineering and programming projects.
The EdCreate system can be used with Edison robots to complete five projects.
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 promote creative problem solving and give students opportunities to find STEM applications to real-world scenarios.
Creator’s STEM kit
The EdCreate 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.
As always, we have created free, downloadable resources to help you get the most out of EdCreate.
The EdCreate teacher’s guide complements the EdCreate EdBuilds and EdChallenges, providing teachers and instructors with:
- supplementary supporting information about the EdBuilds,
- activity extension ideas,
- programming projects, and
- further information on using EdCreate in the classroom environment.
Download the teacher’s guide to EdCreate here or check the individual pages for each model.
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 EdCreate EdChallenges are designed to encourage creative problem solving, exploration, and the tangible application of learned skills.
All of the EdCreate EdChallenges require the use of an Edison robot. Any of the components included in the EdCreate creator’s kit, as well as additional Edison robots and any other materials selected by students, may be used.
