Electronic devices are all around us. We interact with them everyday without even thinking about it – mobile phones, microwaves, computers, etc. Technology is advancing at an astounding rate, and it is essential that the next generation be equipped with the tools to drive innovation and keep this momentum going. Introducing the students of today to modern technology and electronics opens many potential paths into exciting and rewarding future careers in a wide variety of fields. Parallax development kits and tutorials help teach students how to build circuits, use sensors and microcontrollers, and apply these concepts to robotics. Working in a hands-on way with the basic components of modern technology allows students to better understand and interact with the world around us. We strive to design our educational kits so that they engage imagination, spur innovation, and provide a rewarding learning experience for learners of all ages.
