ActivityBot is a great option for first-time robot-builders, as well as an introduction to technology and engineering courses in schools and colleges. Step-by-step web tutorials take you through programming the multicore Propeller microcontroller chip in C, wiring circuits on a breadboard and building sensor systems so the robot can navigate on its own. ActivityBot is ready for expansion with off-the-shelf components, additional sensors and upgrade kits. The Activity Board features an audio jack and a socket for an optional XBee RF module (not included).
