Parallax Announces Three Robotic Workshops for 300 Educators in April!

Our professional development courses for educators have been scheduled for three tracks in April! These hands-on workshops are remotely run through three, 1.5-hour Zoom sessions in a single week. Choose between cyber:bot and Python with the micro:bit, ActivityBot 360 and BlocklyProp, or the Shield-Bot with Arduino. Free for American edcuators!

Propeller 2 Quick Bytes: 20 Code Examples to Get Started

Quick Bytes cover the P2 programming topics requested by our customers. The examples demonstrate programming tools, smart pin modes (ADC, DAC, serial, PWM), communication protocols (SPI, serial, RF), RGB LEDs, games, and motors. The P2’s parallel processing ability and software-configurable peripherals let these functions can occur on any GPIO!   

Ping))) Ultrasonic Distance Sensor

The most successful sensor ever created by Parallax is often imitated but never duplicated! With it’s single-pin communication, accurate and repeatable measurements, and code compatibility with the LaserPing, this sensor has found its way into numerous projects in education and industry.  

P2 Edge and P2 Edge Breadboard Bundle

Developers of all backgrounds are getting started with the Propeller 2 Multicore Microcontroller. We’ve assembled a bundle of the most popular items you’re purchasing, including the P2 Edge Module, P2 Edge Breakout Breadboard, and PropPlug with cables into a single package at a discount. Consider joining the P2 Live Forums to ask questions and get up to speed!   

Future Innovators Fund

With over $5,000.00 of donations from the community and Parallax, we’ve launched the Future Innovators Fund. We send free hardware to students with potential and interest who are otherwise hindered by socioeconomic circumstances or are simply outpacing what’s available at school. 

BBC micro:bit v2.0: we have them in stock!

Educators are calling to ask if we have these in stock. The answer is yes! At this time, we’re the only distributor with an inventory. Place your orders! 

Made in the USA in Rocklin, CA

What does it mean to be Made in the USA? The absolute highest quality we can offer, we manufacture the same product for many years, and that we employ American workers in productive positions. An investment in Parallax is an investment in one’s self.
