Product Description

This hardware conversion kit turns a BASIC Stamp Boe-Bot or a Shield-Bot for Arduino into a Python-programmable cyber:bot.

The cyber:bot robot adds a tangible hardware dimension to Python-focused computer science and CTE programs.  The cyber:bot robot merges a micro:bit module with the Parallax small robot form factor that’s a proven STEM success in classrooms from middle school into college. An onboard Propeller multicore microcontroller assists the micro:bit, handling servo motor control and interaction with breadboard-built circuits for robust projects that go beyond what the micro:bit can do on its own.

The cyber:bot robot is a joint project of Parallax Inc. and CYBER.ORG, the academic division of the Cyber Innovation Center.


  • Python-programmable with Mu software or online MicroPython editor
  • cyber:bot board neatly connects the micro:bit to the Propeller Multicore Microcontroller and robot hardware
  • Propeller multicore microcontroller pre-programmed with cyber:bot firmware manages sensors and servo motor control
  • Build DIY sensor circuits on the breadboard that use touch, visible light, and infrared light
  • Free online tutorials and educator resources – See the cyber:bot Tutorial Series

Requires 5 AA 1.5 V alkaline batteries or 5 1.2 V nickel-metal hydride rechargeable batteries, not included.  Assembly required, no soldering necessary.
