Eduporium was started with the belief that technology can truly, effectively help children learn and grow. This does not mean encouraging children to spend more time texting or taking selfies on their smartphones—but rather productive, meaningful technology that can unlock their imagination and engage their problem-solving skills. The Edison Robot is a LEGO-compatible robot kids can program and use to engage in unique forms of learning. The Edison encourages kids to explore their natural curiosity and find solutions to problems, and it helps them build creative confidence. Edison inspires innovation that leads to faster development and a solidified set of skills while kids play! The possibilities are boundless with the technology today that really allows for a positive impact on children while pushing them toward a successful future.
