Python, BASIC, C and Blockly Robotic Kits and Curriculum

Our turnkey educational program includes a well-developed curriculum, assessment material, and robotic kits that support a variety of programming languages and grade levels. All products are designed for one or two students per kit if distance learning is required. 

Wireless Communication with XBee Series 3 Modules

The XBee Series 3 RF Modules replace the very popular prior versions of Series 1 and 2. The new modules are easily configured with X-CTU and act as a wireless serial cable for a short distance or several miles. We offer the XBee RF Modules, breakout boards, adapters and  code examples for all of our processors, from BlocklyProp to Propeller 2 Spin/PASM (let us know if you can’t find what you’re looking for)!
