The BoE-Bot Robot Kit (USB) is a complete mobile robotics kit.
The BoE-Bot robotics kit includes everything you need to make a functional, educational and entertaining mobile robot. No previous robotics, electronics or programming experience is necessary.
Parallax robots are built on a high-quality brushed aluminum chassis that provides a sturdy platform for the servo motors and printed circuit board. Mounting holes and slots may be used to add custom robotic equipment. The rear wheel is a drilled polyethylene ball held in place with a cotter pin.
The BoE-Bot’s flexibility stems from the fact that it’s a rolling Board of Education. All I/O projects are built on the breadboard. The Board of Education may be removed for use with other Stamps in Class curriculum. The robot may be programmed to follow a line, solve a maze, follow light, or communicate with another robot. The Board of Education is also available as a separate item (see Related Items, below)
The BoE-Bot is an excellent introduction for anyone interested in robotics. However, the BoE-Bot really shines in the classroom.
The Robotics with the BoE-Bot text includes 41 new activities for the BoE-Bot robot with structured PBASIC 2.5 source code support and bonus challenges with solutions in each chapter. Starting with basic movement and proceeding to sensor-based projects, students quickly learn how the BoE-Bot is expandable for many different robotic projects.
Over 90,000 BoE-Bot robots are in use by hobbyists, educators and students around the world, which provided lots of feedback for improvements to this popular kit along the way.
If you already have a Board of Education the addition of the Robotics with the BoE-Bot Parts kit (see Related Products, below) gives you everything you need to make a full BoE-Bot.
The BoE-Bot comes as a kit; assembly is required. Assembly time is 1-2 hours
