Learn with Parallax
Our tutorial-focused educational website, learn.parallax.com, offers free online resources and educational guides for students, and for teachers. For our student learners, our material encourages the growth and development of foundational electronics and programming skills. For our teaching community, Learn offers a wealth of resources beyond the basic tutorials including assessment material, source code, standards guides, and more.
Are you an educator with questions, comments, or concerns? Do you need help choosing the right solution for your classroom? Parallax’s Education Department is available to assist you. We have a dedicated staff ready to help over the phone, by email, and during professional development courses. They possess a wealth of information and resources to get you, and your students, on the path to success.
If your school hasn’t explored robotics because it looked too expensive, technical, or difficult to implement, we have products that are both inexpensive and surprisingly easy to teach. Parallax’s programs focus on a high robot-per-pupil ratio, increasing the opportunity for every student to learn about programming and electronics at under $250 per kit.
