Resources robot Edison

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.

Learn how to code with EdScratch

Edison Edscratch lessons resources

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.

To set up these activities, you will need :

  • An Edison educational robot (charged with 4 AAA batteries)
  • An EdComm programming cable supplied with your Edison robot
  • A programming device (a tablet, computer or laptop) with an audio jack
  • An Internet connection to access the EdScratch programming application at 
  • A digital or printed copy of the lesson

Edison robot lessons and resources


How computers "think


Exploring EdScratch

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.


Drive of the Edison robot

Use the "drive" block category to lead Edison through a trail and a mini maze. Includes a bonus maze challenge.

  • Computational Thinking
  • Sequence
  • Training" blocks
  • Time required: between 30 and 45 minutes (15 to 45 additional minutes for the bonus maze challenge)
  • Lesson 5: Exploring Edison's Conduct


Exploring Edison outputs

The input-output cycle is introduced and then tested. Explore the "LED" and "Sound" block categories in EdScratch. Includes a bonus maze challenge.

  • Inputs / outputs
  • LED and sound blocks
  • Time required: between 30 and 60 minutes (15 to 30 minutes extra for the bonus maze challenge)
  • Lesson 6: Exploring Edison's outputs


Exploring Edison inputs

Explore the concept of input parameters in detail. 

  • Inputs / outputs
  • Computational Thinking
  • Time required: between 15 and 30 minutes
  • Lesson 7: Exploring Edison Inputs


Counting with Edison

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.

  • Inputs / outputs
  • Sequential thinking
  • "Drive" blocks
  • Time required: between 30 and 45 minutes (15 to 30 minutes extra for the bonus challenge)
  • Lesson 8: Counting to 9 with Edison


Making music with Edison

Use sequence and I/O to create musical tunes with Edison.

  • Inputs / outputs
  • Sequential thinking
  • "Music" blocks
  • Time required: between 45 and 60 minutes (additional 30 to 45 minutes for the bonus challenge)
  • Lesson 9: Exploring Edison's Musical Talent


Exploring bugs and debugging Edison

The basic principles of debugging are presented in this lesson and the practice is applied to the EdScratch environment.


The motors of the Edison robot

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.

  • Debugging
  • Inputs / outputs
  • Sequential thinking
  • Input parameters
  • Time required: between 45 and 60 minutes (Plus extra time for bonus challenge projects: 2 available)
  • Lesson 11: Exploring Edison Engines

Edison educational robot: skills challenge

Edison Robot Skill Challenge


Choose from two challenges and ask students to apply the sequence and their learning to a project.

  • Debugging
  • Inputs / outputs
  • Computational Thinking
  • Sequence
  • Time required: specific to each project
  • Lesson 12: Edison Skills Challenge
