Robotics for the Boe-Bot Educator Resources

The Boe-Bot Robot - USB with IR Obstacle Detection Circuitry built onto the breadboard.
The Boe-Bot Robot is programmed using PBASIC - arguably the easiest text-based language for beginners to learn. Ideal for students who are new to programming, electronics, and robotics, the Boe-Bot is a time-tested platform, making it one of the best places for students to begin learning. The complete Robotics with the Boe-Bot learning system includes the educator resources, hardware, software, and textbooks.
