Parallax is offering these courses entirely free and they include an ActivityBot! The courses provide the teachers with the same hands-on experience they’ll use in the classroom. The focus is on building electronic circuits with sensors and motors, programming the system with Blockly (and C), and simply providing students with meaningful STEM learning experiences in which they’d like to engage. The Parallax course uses the Propeller Multicore Microcontroller - but so what? It’s the same chip used in real-world commercial products, giving your students a path forward.
