Educational Robotics Programming Software
Edison can be programmed from a growing number of FREE software applications.
EdWare – Graphical based robot programming software
EdWare is graphical programming software that makes teaching educational robotics a breeze! Using drag and drop graphical icons robot programming is easy to learn and great fun! EdWare is available for Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS (iPad) and Android. EdWare is FREE to download or use online.
EdPy – Python based robot programming software
EdPy makes text-based programming fun, as students can see their code come to life in their Edison robot.
Python is easy to learn, has high readability and is very popular.
The EdPy programming environment has a range of features that help students to learn texted-based programming. These include:
EdPy is a FREE web and Chrome app (coming soon). Check it out here www.edpyapp.com
EdBlocks – Graphical based robot programming software for junior primary students (coming soon)
EdBlocks makes programming super easy for younger students with drag and drop graphical icons that click into place.
EdBlocks is based on a convergence of Scratch and Blockly by MIT and Google. The release of EdBlocks is expected in the first half of 2017 and will be a FREE web app.
Simple downloading from any device with the EdComm cable
Each Edison comes with an EdComm cable for downloading programs into Edison.
More free educational robotics resources available for download
There are three FREE to download EdBooks that introduce educational robotics. Each EdBook is fully illustrated and takes students through the three main concepts of controlling, programming and building robots. In addition, an A1 size educational robotics activity mat is free to download.
EdBook1 Your EdVenture into Educational Robotics – You’re a controller
EdBook2 Your EdVenture into Educational Robotics – You’re a Programmer
EdBook3 Your EdVenture into Educational Robotics – You’re a Builder
EdMat educational robotics activity mat
The EdMat is an A1 size (59cm x 84cm) (23.2in x 33.1in) educational robotics activity mat that can be printed at your local print shop.
The EdMat has 6 barcodes that activate Edison’s pre-programmed features and a track for Edison to follow. The track can also be used for ‘bounce in borders’ and ‘sumo wrestling’. There are two versions colour and black and white.

We only just started using Eddie yesterday. Easy enough to use...we have only done the bar codes but will be trying the scratch programming next week. I like how it adapts to different levels of programming and ages of children. One of his wheels seems to get stuck but we'll see if that fixes itself. For an introductory robot and for the price, this little dude is great and listens to instructions well.
It was a bit difficult for my 7 year old grandson to install it all on his IPad, Dad had to help quite a bit. But now he loves it and has been programming Edison to demolish his domino knock-down structures. I like the levels of programming Edison as the person becomes more proficient with coding and programming.
Very fast delivery
Very fast delivery and packaged well
The Edison Robot is a great way to start kids programming it links the real world to the internal world of the computer. My 6 year old can write Edblocks programs after less than a hour and can get Edison to do simple things. Its a simple robot so don't expect too much and the connecting cable is a little old school using the audio jack and a propriety plug. However, lego compatibility, price and accessibility are all great feature. Cheers pakronics for a quick service.
