Educational robots are often labeled as robots for school, but more and more manufacturers like Edison are going to great lengths to erase this barrier and highlight the possibilities of these robots to learn code, programming and STEM at home.
Many lessons are available online for free to allow children and parents to engage in this step-by-step learning in a simple and fun way.
The Covid-19 period was a challenge for everyone and Edison has put a whole line of lessons online to help overcome the distance learning barrier but which can now be used directly by families and children at home. Educational robots allow you to learn but also to have fun through challenges, challenges and projects straight from your imagination.
Robot-Advance offers here direct links to download Edison's educational robot resources for use at home. These resources are in English but you can use automatic translators such as Deepl to understand and advance easily. These resources can also be used by schools for new ideas for using the Edison robot in the classroom.
A set of lessons for EdScratch users. The lessons use the EdScratch programming application which is easy to learn while providing a solid platform for teaching computer science. This set of lessons is suitable for children over 10 years old.

Starting with Edison and Edscratch
Meet the Bug Box: a useful and important feature in EdScratch that will help you find and solve problems in your code.
Learn how changing the sequence of blocks on the screen affects the robot's behavior, reinforcing the importance of the sequence in programming. The idea that each EdScratch block is an "action" is introduced.
Use the "drive" block category to lead Edison through a trail and a mini maze. Includes a bonus maze challenge.
The input-output cycle is introduced and then tested. Explore the "LED" and "Sound" block categories in EdScratch. Includes a bonus maze challenge.
Explore the concept of input parameters in detail.
This activity presents programming challenges that build on some of the skills developed by the students, including an understanding of the input-process-output cycle. Includes a bonus challenge activity.
Use sequence and I/O to create musical tunes with Edison.
The basic principles of debugging are presented in this lesson and the practice is applied to the EdScratch environment.
Students explore in more detail how Edison's motor outputs are controlled by drive blocks and learn that motors can operate and be controlled independently.
Choose from two challenges and ask students to apply the sequence and their learning to a project.
