Meet Edison

Why does Construct Learning love Edison?

  • It’s affordable. At only $50, it’s one of the most affordable robots of it’s kind on the market.
  • It’s scalable. Instead of purchasing different robots for your beginner and advanced students, Edison can be programmed with a visual editor for your young learners and text-based Python for your more advanced students.
  • Durable. It can survive the wrath of any classroom.
  • Expandable. Using LEGO or the expansion pack, students can make all sorts of projects.
