NCCP111G - Basic Stamp Microcontroller Workshop

Credits: Non-credit

One-day training seminar for STEM educators in electronic design and principles for digital devices using the Parallax Basic Stamp MicroController.  In this hands-on workshop, educators receive an introduction to programming, electronics, robotics and automation of the Parallax Basic Stamp Boe-Bot.  Included are activities to teach:  writing programs in easy-to-learn PBASIC on the computer, building simple circuits from pictures and schematics, practicing coding with interactive circuits using basic switches, sensors and various displays, downloading PBASIC programs into the Basic Stamp to control the circuits, assembling the Boe-Bot, driving the Boe-Bot with simple motion programs and subroutines.  Throughout the days lab sessions we will explore additional sensors for the Boe-Bot to navigate on its own.
