Edison 2019 Design Challenge as a class project

Show your students that learning about computers is not just about writing programs! The Edison Robot Design Challenge is an ideal project to explore design thinking and test the skills of the 21st century. 

To help your students get started, we have created a guide to help them brainstorm, plan and repeat their invention. This short guide presents ideas such as decomposition and the design-build-test cycle, and then helps students create independently.
