Learn Robotics, Electronics and Programming with comprehensive step-by-step lessons by using the popular Arduino as the brains behind the best selling Boe-Bot Robotics Kit by Parallax.

Make your Arduino the onboard brain of a mobile robot and learn robotics, electronics, and programming with this versatile kit and its accompanying step-by-step lessons. The Board of Education Shield plugs into your Arduino (Arduino UNO included) and mounts on the popular Boe-Bot robot chassis.

With this kit and your own Arduino module, you can follow the Robotics with the Board of Education Shield for Arduino lessons with over 40 hands-on activities.

The original Robotics with the Boe-Bot text for the BASIC Stamp® microcontroller has enjoyed worldwide popularity with teachers and hobbyists, and has been translated into seven languages. Author Andy Lindsay revised his work for the Arduino community, and Parallax Inc. is making it available as a free, online tutorial at

Key Features:
Beginner-friendly - No programming experience needed
Open platform - Exposed circuitry allows you to learn and create your own electronic circuits
Solder-free - Experiment with custom circuits on the breadboard (no special-brand connectors)
Understandable - Included text provides easy-to-follow tutorials
Autonomous - Touch, light and infrared sensors let the Boe-Bot navigate on its own
Expandable - Additional sensors and hardware expansion kits are available to get the most our of your robot

The tutorial will walk you through the following:
Learning to program your robot's Arduino Brain
Calibrating the robot's continuous rotation servo motors
Using lights and speakers for status indicators
Assembling the robot
Preprogrammed navigation
Using touch-switches to navigate by contact with objects
Using phototransistors to navigate by light
Using non-contact infrared sensors to measure distance and avoid or follow objects
