Our original educational robot with a BASIC Stamp microcontroller 2 brain.
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.
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.

The Boe-Bot is a good first robot for junior high, high school, and community college courses. For many years it has been used in classroom and regional competitions.
This robot kit can be used as a California A-G approved elective course.
Presentations, course guides and assessment material are available to verified educators; contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
