Gearing up for Coding with Edison Robots

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Edison robots are an affordable simple robot that can be used at grade levels from 3-12 and with all kinds of devices. Educators interested in introducing programming/coding and computational thinking to students with a  concrete and immediate outcome will find Edison to be a great choice. In this workshop, you will learn the basics of a web based programming environment for edison "EdScratch", create your own programs, and run the programs on an Edison, and learn where to access free resources for using and implementing edison in your school.  

Suitable for those with no robot/coding experience. Please bring a laptop or chromebook that has a standard audio jack.
