This kit does NOT include a micro:bit module; it is offered as a convenience for classrooms that already have a supply of micro:bit modules on hand. For a complete kit, purchase the cyber:bot Robot Kit with micro:bit (#32700). Purchase the micro:bit GO bundle (#32703) if a replacement module is needed.
The cyber:bot printed circuit board (PCB) provides the connection between the BBC micro:bit module and the cyber:bot chassis. A user-transparent onboard Propeller Multicore Microcontroller assists the micro:bit, handling the real-time servo motor control and sensors built on the breadboard. This enables more robust robotic applications that go beyond what the micro:bit can do on its own.
This board is available individually as a replacement item for the cyber:bot robot. The micro:bit module and the nuts and screws needed to mount the boards together are not included.
To get started, purchase the cyber:bot robot kit (#32700).
The cyber:bot is a joint project of Parallax Inc. and NICERC, the National Integrated Cyber Education Research Center.
The NICERC Shield Bot with Arduino Kit is used in NICERC’s Cyber Literacy curricula. This kit is only available for NICERC educators and is designed exclusively for NICERC curriculum.
A fully hands-on robotics kit provides students opportunities to create meaningful projects built around the Arduino microcontroller platform. The Shield-Bot with Arduino is a great learning platform for exploring the world of cyber, electronics, and C-style programming.
