Boe-Bot Single Bundle - Robot with CurriculumItem #: ER-BB02
Publisher: Exploring Robotics
Grade Level: 8-10
Boe-Bot Robot Kit with Individual Curriculum 1 year License
for Grades 8-10.
The lessons provide a companion learning tool for the Boe-Bot mobile robot from Parallax - with 3D models and step by step instruction on video for assembly, building electronic circuits, and programming the robot. Created for use in both classes and self-study, the online lessons provide video instruction for hands-on learning. This bundle is great for self study, home school, and teacher trials.
The videos and 3D models provide a realistic view, make it easy to see close up, and take a student step by step through the construction of Boe-Bot, testing the motors, calibration, and adding electronic components for each activity.
This robot is capable of line following, roaming, navigating mazes, and much more. Students learn electronics with the included solderless breadboard. They also learn programming in a text-based language: Basic where commands are typed. This is a great transition from graphical languages like Blockly or Scratch, and much easier to learn than C because the coding syntax is less demanding.
Parallax's Boe-Bot Robot is built on a high-quality brushed aluminum chassis that provides a sturdy platform for the continuous rotation servo motors and BASIC Stamp® module's Board of Education carrier board. Many mounting holes and slots may be used to add custom robotic equipment or off-the-shelf Parallax add-ons. The rear wheel is a slider ball held in place with a cotter pin. Drive wheels are molded to fit precisely on the servo spline and held in place with screws. This robot can be easily dis-assembled for use in multiple classrooms.
What really makes the Boe-Bot unique is the BASIC Stamp microcontroller's flexibility of programming when coupled with breadboard circuit construction. Students quickly learn about sensors and embedded control projects, from wiring and components to programming and mechanical dependencies.
Build a rolling personal robot and control it with a microcontroller brain. Keep students engaged while learning electronics concepts with the LEDs, resistors, capacitors, and other electronic parts which come with this kit. Students learn about and build circuits on the solderless breadboard and use Basic programming language to control the robot. This robot follows lines, navigates mazes, follows people or other robots, has whiskers to detect objects, detects light, flashes lights, plays tunes, and more!
