More about the Boe-Bot Robot

This Board of Education on wheels is designed for skill-building. Students will wire breadboard-based circuits that use touch, visible light, and infrared light for robot navigation, using real-world components.

The robot’s BASIC Stamp brain is programmed in PBASIC, a simple text based language where each line in a single file performs a single task, with nothing hidden or abstracted in libraries.

Tutorials & Resources

The Boe-Bot kit includes a 360 page spiral-bound book Robotics with the Boe-Bot (also a free PDF download). 

Each chapter builds on the one before, introducing skills, concepts, and components in a step-by-step fashion.
