Effective, engaging, enjoyable education
Microbric’s educational products open up the world of computer science, coding, engineering and STEAM to students and teachers. Created with the classroom environment in mind, our products help teachers deliver curriculum outcomes without breaking the budget.
The Edison robot is a powerful, engaging tool for teaching kids STEM, computational thinking and computer programming in a hands-on way.
Coding that’s tangible
Robots bring computer science to life. Unlike on-screen only coding, robots let kids really see their programs working. Programmable robots provide kids with instant, tangible feedback by allowing them to test in the real world as they go.
Using Edison, students can learn the fundamentals of coding as they progress through three different programming languages, including drag-and-drop icon-based programming all the way through to coding in a vertical text-based language.
Education that’s meaningful
The versatility of the Edison robot makes it a brilliant tool for teaching a wide range of subjects. Build and invent using Edison as the programmable base for an incredible range of engineering and STEM projects using the EdCreate construction kit and any other LEGO brick compatible building system.
Integrating Edison into your classroom is easy with our free teaching resources designed to help educators unlock robotics and coding to get the most out of Edison. All of our resources, including lesson plans, teacher’s guides and student worksheet sets, are free to download and licenced under Creative Commons.
