The Edison Robot is an affordable, smart robot that brings programming and robotics to the classroom. Edison was made by Australians, and they built it for educators in the classroom, so it's loaded with impressive features that will make your lessons more engaging. There is a tonne of resources available, all linked with the National Curriculum too, so it's the tool you need for programming and STEM in the Australian classroom.

  • All ages - The Edison is a robot built for all ages. You won't need a different tool for each stage, Edison is designed to be a perfect fit for all students.
  • The perfect STEM Tool - It's not a myth, Edison is loaded with sensors, follows lines, communicates with other Edisons, avoids obstacles, and lots more.
  • Affordable - The Edison is the perfect platform to get that heralded 1 robot per student in your classroom with its incredibly enticing price point.
  • Scratch and block-based Programming - Any Primary educator knows that block-based coding is essential in teaching the foundations of coding.
  • Python - Future-proof your STEM program with the option to code in Python, the worlds most used coding language. If there's one language that everyone should learn, it's Python.
  • Modular/Expandable - The Edison is modular and LEGO compatible, you can add LEGO blocks to your robot as well as additional sensors and boards to increase its capabilities.
  • Resources for Australian Educators - There are so many resources that come with your Edison, all available free, that we can't list them here. Scroll down for links galore!

Free Resources for Australian Educators

For each way you want to use Edison, there's a guide and resources available to you. It could be Block-based with the younger students, or Python with the older ones. Edison comes as a complete STEM tool/package. Here's a list of resources we've found:

EdBlocks (The Free Browser based Coding Environment for Block-Based coding with Edison)

EdScratch (The Free Browser based Coding Environment for Scratch coding with Edison)

EdPy (The Free Browser based Coding Environment for Python coding with Edison)

Using the Edison - What is EdScratch

EdScratch is a vertical block-based visual programming language based on Scratch. EdScratch combines the ease of drag-and-drop programming with powerful functionality and versatility. The result is a robot programming language that is easy to learn and offers a robust platform for computer science education.


The online EdScratch programming environment is designed to deliver meaningful computer science education through an easy-to-use interface. EdScratch’s intuitive layout and the simplicity of block-based coding makes EdScratch an ideal programming language for students aged 10 and up. Helpful features, like the built-in bug box, make the transition to using more complex programming structures approachable even with no prior coding experience. As students gain confidence in coding, they can do even more by controlling inputs, manipulating data, and creating and utilising variables, making EdScratch a perfect platform to use Edison’s features in engaging, creative ways.

Using the Edision - What is EdPy - Python Based Coding

EdPy is a highly versatile text-based programming language for the Edison robot. EdPy is based on Python, a popular computer programming language renowned for being easy-to-learn with high readability. Programmers use Python to develop everything from the latest apps to business software. EdPy makes text-based programming fun by letting students see their code come to life in their Edison robot. With EdPy, students are learning the core of a real programming language and are able to take their exploration of robotics and coding to a more advanced level.

EdPy is available online with no installation, no driver software and is completely FREE.
