Meet Edison Offers Free At-Home Lessons

Meet Edison is now offering free at-home lessons to families looking to supplement their STEM curriculum.

The creator of the Edison robot, Brenton O’Brien was interviewed on The Wired Homeschool in 2016.

With schools closing around the world and uncertainty about when ‘normal’ classes will resume, our hearts are with all the teachers, families and students being affected by this unprecedented event. This is a truly unique time for us all. As a company, we want to help and have decided that the best way for us to do so is by curating our existing resources into do-at-home opportunities. We are also looking at creating new resources to support families who have the option to use an Edison robot at home.

We will be updating our site with additional resources as we generate them.

Our team are here to help with any questions or issues you may have using your Edison robot as well. Feel free to contact us and we will be in touch soon.

Please take care of yourselves.

The Edison robot costs around $50 and is available on Amazon with free shipping.
