EdCreate

The EdCreate Edison robot creator’s kit is a 5-in-1 expansion pack construction system. Designed to work with the Edison robot, EdCreate enriches students’ STEM education experience through interactive engineering and programming projects.

The EdCreate system can be used with Edison robots to complete five EdBuild projects:

  • the EdTank,
  • the EdDigger,
  • the EdRoboClaw,
  • the EdCrane, and
  • the EdPrinter.

The EdBuild projects require progressive levels of coding capabilities, making them a perfect addition to the Edison programming and robotics curriculum.

EdCreate can also be used in a wide range of open-ended engineering, design and programming challenges. Open-ended projects, including the EdCreate EdChallenges, promote creative problem solving and give students opportunities to find STEM applications to real-world scenarios.

About the EdCreate – Edison robot creator’s kit

The EdCreate Edison robot creator’s kit is a construction system consisting of 115 interlocking building blocks, pegs, gears, and other parts. The individual EdCreate pieces are designed with studs and holes which are compatible with Edison robots and any other LEGO brick compatible building system. 

One EdCreate kit can be used to create five different EdBuilds and a range of other engineering and design challenges. The kit can also be expanded with other LEGO brick compatible building system parts.

Coding education for all ages and skill levels

All Edison robot programming languages are free to use for unlimited users and no registration is required to access the programming environments. Edison robots can be programmed four different ways;

Barcodes

EdBlocks

EdScratch

EdPy

 Edison scans unique barcodes to activate pre-set programs in the robots and are the perfect way for anyone to kick-start learning with Edison. (ages 4+)

This fully graphical drag-and-drop programming language is intuitive and fun - perfect for introducing anyone to programming. (ages 7+)

Easy drag-and drop programming with powerful functionality and versatility. EdScratch is a robust platform for computer science education. (ages 10+)

Text-based EdPy teaches students the core of a real-world programming language, empowering them to explore robotics and coding at a more advanced level. (ages 13+)

 

 

EdBuild – EdTank

The EdTank is actually two builds in one: the basic EdTank and the complete EdTank with rubber band cannon.

The basic EdTank uses one Edison robot which can be programmed to drive forwards, backwards and spin right or left using barcodes and a TV or DVD remote control. The complete EdTank includes a second Edison robot which controls the firing of the rubber band cannon.

  • Difficulty rating: 1 [EdTank (basic)]  2 [EdTank (complete)]
  • Recommended age: 8+ 
  • Programming skills needed: Barcodes and remote control

EdBuild – EdDigger

The EdDigger is a remote-controlled excavator, or digger, with a scoop that you can drive around (forwards, backwards and spin right or left). The digger scoop of the EdDigger can lift or lower and can carry small objects, such as parts from the EdCreate kit.

  • Difficulty rating: 2
  • Recommended age: 8+ 
  • Programming skills needed: Barcodes and remote control

EdBuild – EdRoboClaw

The EdRoboClaw is a remote-controlled articulated robotic arm. You will be able to drive the EdRoboClaw forwards, backwards and spin it right or left. You will also be able to open and close the claw to pick up and carry an object, such as one of the EdCreate beams. 

  • Difficulty rating: 3
  • Recommended age: 8+ 
  • Programming skills needed: Barcodes and remote control

EdBuild – EdCrane

The EdCrane is a remote-controlled crane with a magnetic hook which you can raise and lower. The magnetic hook of the EdCrane can lift or lower small ferrous-metal objects, such as metal paper clips or small screws, as well as the metal peg from the EdCreate kit. The metal peg can be attached to one of the parts from the EdCreate kit, such as a 3-hole beam, and used with the magnetic hook. 

  • Difficulty rating: 4
  • Recommended age: 10+ 
  • Programming skills needed: Barcodes and remote control AND EdScratch OR EdPy

EdBuild – EdPrinter

The EdPrinter is a pen plotter which is run using two Edison robots programmed using EdPy. By attaching a writing utensil, such as a felt-tip pen, inserting paper into the base of the EdPrinter, and using a set of basic functions in EdPy, the EdPrinter can be programmed to create a range of different shapes. 

  • Difficulty rating: 5
  • Recommended age: 12+ 
  • Programming skills needed: EdPy
