Boe-Bot Engineering Expansion Single Package
Take Boe-Bot to the next level with engineering and programming
activities. This engineering expansion kit box includes these robot
kits: (Crawler, Ping Sonar, Line Follower, Tank Treads), plus a Remote,
and an Engineering Challenge Erector Set with over 200 parts. Comes in
storage case with labeled removable boxes for each kit, and small boxes
for storing screws to keep things organized.
Gain additional engineering skills for Boe-Bot using more sensors, assemblies, programming challenges and competitions. Great for extending a Boe-Bot course or creating a second course focusing on engineering and advanced programming skills.
Purchase Engineering Curriculum and Boe-Bot separately. Assumes have
completed Boe-Bot and have programming skills. Several students can
share one expansion kit, if each is building a separate add-on, but will
need to share the kit for the final real-world engineering challenge.

Generate Interest in STEM Careers
ey Features and Benefits:
- Comprehensive: Four to Six challenging activities
for each kit with instruction and concept videos, worksheets, 3D
assembly models, and enrichment challenges.·
- Expansive: Lessons for 30 to 50 hours. Teachers can
either expand their Digital Electronics and Programming with Boe-Bot
course to a full year or offer a second class.
- Successful: Step by step instructions in both video
and print for assembly of kits and ·programming helps assure student
success and prepares for challenges.
- Challenging: Programming requires that students
build on prior skills, and learn new skills on their own.· For the
engineering challenge students design and build their own add-on arm and
enclosure for Boe-Bot using supplied parts and add their own parts to
- Engaging: Competitions to show off skills learned. Each kit has one or two competitions included and students may design their own.
- Rigorous Instruction: Additional videos to learn
physics and engineering concepts and provide motivation for engineering
challenges where students design and buld their own add-on components
- Accountability: Questions to answer and worksheets to turn in with program code for each activity.
- Easy access:·Entire curriculum with lesson
instructions, video, printable instruction guides, ·sample programs, and
worksheets are accessed online from an easy to use menu system, nothing
extra to install on computers. ·Students can turn in word processing
work sheets with links to video for proof of completion. · Additional
materials are provided online for instructors.
