Arduino Shield Robot Kits are perfect for learning about robotics, electronics, and programming, with this versatile kit and its accompanying step-by-step lessons. The Board of Education Shield plugs into your own Arduino (not 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.

  • 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

We worked with Parallax to have the aluminum chassis custom anodized in Make: royal blue just for you. Not only does it look amazing, it sets your robot apart from the pack!

The original Robotics with the Boe-Bot text for the BASIC Stampᆴ 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.
