What's a Microcontroller with Python and micro:bit Resources
The cyber:bot robot adds a tangible hardware dimension to Python-focused computer science, CTE and cybersecurity programs. This robot puts the BBC micro:bit module on the Parallax small robot form factor that's a proven STEM success in classrooms from middle school into college, leveraging the add-ons available for this chassis.
The ActivityBot 360° Robot is our most capable and versatile small robot. Perfect for classrooms in middle school level and above, this robot can be programmed with the visual BlocklyProp programming tool or in text-based C-language. With its block-based approach to program building, BlocklyProp is a perfect entry point for students who are new to programming, electronics, and robotics, or who may struggle with traditional text-based programming.
This section contains downloads and resources for educators teaching with the Propeller microcontroller or any of its stand-alone boards (excluding ELEV-8 Flight Controller resources). This section does not include ActivityBot-specific resources.
The Propeller chip is a multicore microcontroller that is programmable in high-level languages (Spin™ and C) as well as a low-level (Propeller assembly) language. This microcontroller is the brains for our ActivityBot robot, ELEV-8 Flight Controller, and more.
Scribbler 3 Resources
The Scribbler 3 (S3) the perfect place for students and teachers to begin their STEM/STEAM journey. Programming, robotics, and even integrating math and art are all possible with the S3.
This section currently contains a growing set of solutions for the "Your Turn" sections of our S3 web tutorials. This material is restricted to registered educators only. If you are an educator who does not have an account on Learn, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org (from a valid school email address) to register.

What's a Microcontroller? Educator Resources (BASIC Stamp)
The BASIC Stamp Microcontroller is one of the most user-friendly microcontrollers available. The BASIC Stamp is programmed using PBASIC - arguably the easiest text-based language for beginners to learn. Ideal for students who are new to programming and electronics, the BASIC Stamp, the Board of Education, and the Homework Board are time-tested platforms, making them some of the best places for students to begin learning.
