Board of Education (USB) Full Kit (Sale)

Replacement: None. We are no longer carrying this board but have a look at our other development tools. This page is for reference only.

The Board of Education Full Kit is a concise package of all the hardware you need to begin building projects with the BASIC Stamp microcontroller. Everything you need is included except for a power supply, and components needed to build a specific project. The beginner parts kit would pair really well with this board.

The BOE carrier board is capable of being used in a wide variety of applications - originally, designed for education, this board is now implemented in a number of different projects. The convenient hook-ups, 3-position power switch, and the overall solid workmanship make it a very reliable platform for any 24-pin BASIC Stamp.

The Board of Education Kit contains a Board of Education® carrier board, BASIC Stamp® 2 module, pluggable wires, and USB cable. No power supply is included, see related products below for a matching supply.

    I recommend anyone not forced to purchase this to seriously consider the Arduino first. Search for "Stamp Activity Kit - Serial" on this site and read my comment there. Believe me I'm looking out for you. If you purchase the Arduino and are worried about the learning curve try Sparkfun forums, everyone there is extremely friendly, helpful and usually prompt.

    Hooray! I've loved Parallax since forever, and now they're playing nice with my favorite EE store, Sparkfun!
