Educators launching the new “What’s a Microcontroller? with Python” curriculum in their Fall classes are asking about which kits they need. I wrote an overview post a few weeks back you may read before this one. Since we’ve not yet made a formal landing page for the series, the “getting started” pieces are found here, in our news. We still have openings in the upcoming educator’s workshop on November 15, 17, and 19.
Four Kit Choices (and the only way to get a micro:bit v2.0!)
The only way to get a micro:bit v2.0 module is in one of our kits. The number of choices may be a little confusing at first look, but the reasoning becomes apparent as we strive to support many years of repetitive classroom use without obsolescence.
These are your hardware choices:
- #32755 What’s a Microcontroller? with Python Parts Kit – no micro:bit
- #32750 What’s a Microcontroller? with Python Parts Kit – with micro:bit v2.0 This is the most popular, complete choice for getting started. Buy one kit per student.
- #32752 What’s a Microcontroller? with Python Parts Kit 12-Pack Plus – with micro:bit v2.0 Twelve sets of #32750 plus 12 each of our popular sensors for student-driven projects, cables, and replacement components. This is the best value for running a full-semester course with Parallax.
- #572-32750 What’s a Microcontroller? with Python Parts Kit Electronics Pack Replenishment components to bring a kit up to current standards, included in all of the above products.
