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 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.
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.
The EdCreate teacher’s guide complements the EdCreate EdBuilds and EdChallenges, providing teachers and instructors with:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Spark your student’s imaginations! These free-form challenges are open-ended engineering design projects perfect for getting students to think creatively, be resourceful and inventive. The EdCreate EdChallenges are designed to encourage creative problem solving, exploration, and the tangible application of learned skills.
All of the EdCreate EdChallenges require the use of an Edison robot. Any of the components included in the EdCreate creator’s kit, as well as additional Edison robots and any other materials selected by students, may also be used.
