Join us for an out of this world Edison Lunar Rescue webinar on Tuesday 17 September 1-2pm.
Edisons are an Australian designed robot which is Lego compatible.
The Edison can be converted into countless types of machines with the EdCreate extension packs, Lego blocks, or whatever you might have lying around!
Edison can be coded via its own block-based coding language, Edblocks, or via barcodes, and can be driven with any infra-red remote-control unit, just like the one for your tv. It can also be used on its own without any external device at all.
This webinar will provide information and activities to assist library staff to develop and deliver an Edison Lunar Rescue activity.
Edison Lunar Rescue activity invites ‘space engineers’ to work together to design and create Edison vehicles, then use coding skills to collect ‘energised lunar rocks’ that will generate a circuit to power a LED to restore power at the moon library!
Participants will learn how to:
• create a lunar surface out of Al-foil and cardboard
• code Edisions using an iPad
• operate Edisions using a remote control
• create a simple power circuit to power a LED
