Robots

Meet our robots...

Edison is a programmable robot designed to be an engaging hands-on tool for coding and robotics, for students from early primary to secondary.20180709 robots image

Edison robots can…

  • Respond to light and sound
  • Follow lines and avoid obstacles
  • Communicate with other Edison robots
  • Connect to other Edison robots and LEGO

From early Primary, students can explore coding and robotics, using Edison’s pre-set programs and remote-control operation capabilities.

Later Primary through to Secondary students can learn the fundamentals of coding as they progress from drag-and-drop icon-based programming all the way through to coding in a vertical text-based language.

Want to learn more about robots and coding? Join our after school robot club, running weekly during school terms at both libraries. Call the library to sign up.
