Boe-Bot Robot Kit - Serial (with USB adapter and cable)
The ever-popular Boe-Bot® Robot Full Kit (serial version) is our most complete reprogrammable robot kit. Build your own roaming robot with a BASIC Stamp 2 microcontroller brain. Follow the clear, step-by-step instructions and illustrations with the included book, Robotics with the Boe-Bot. No programming or electronics experience is needed!
The Boe-Bot Robot takes about 1-2 hours to assemble. Each project in the Robotics text provides a unique new experience of wiring and source code tuning. Completing the entire set of projects takes about 50 hours and is suitable for anyone over the age of 13. The USB Board of Education (and BS2-IC) may also be removed to be used as your platform for the other kits in the Stamps in Class series.
You can find Boe-Bot robots in middle and high schools, vocational schools and colleges, robotics clubs, and hobbyists' homes. They are great companions for learning or teaching technology, mechatronics, and STEM programs. It's also an approved platform for the Boy Scouts of America Robotics Merit Badge. This kit can be used as a California A-G approved elective course. Assessment material is available to verified educators; contact [email protected] for details.
