Description: Replacement: None. We are no longer carrying this kit, but have a look at our robotics category for more robo-fun! This page is for reference only.

The Boe-Bot is a popular robotics kit based on Parallax’s BASIC Stamp 2 microcontroller. Over 90,000 Boe-Bot robots are in use by hobbyists, educators and students around the world. Starting with basic movement and proceeding to sensor-based projects, customers quickly learn how the Boe-Bot is expandable for many different robotic projects. No previous robotics, electronics or programming experience is necessary.

What really makes the Boe-Bot unique is the BASIC Stamp microcontroller’s flexibility of programming when coupled with breadboard circuit construction. Following along in Robotics with the Boe-Bot, users quickly learn about embedded projects, from wiring and components to programming and mechanical dependencies. The Robotics text includes 41 activities for the Boe-Bot Robot with structured PBASIC 2.5 source code support and bonus challenges with solutions in each chapter.
