The micro:bit is a tremendous value and a wonderful board. I can't wait to have one of the cyber:bots. Is there more info available at this time?

    I hope to "see" you there. By the way, if you can't make it - these are usually recorded and you can watch it later.

    This is your opportunity to see the cyber:bot hardware in action! Learn about the Python programming tutorials Parallax is developing in collaboration with the National Integrated Cyber Education Research Center. The cyber:bot extends the popular BBC micro:bit to provide real-time I/O control to include our most popular robotic circuits including:

    Real-time control of motors with direction and speed;
    Whiskers as a simple touch-sensor for object avoidance;
    Photoresistors for light following and avoidance;
    Infrared sensors for wireless object detection; and
    Line sensors for following black electrical tape.

    We will share the Python programming environment, release schedule, instructional tools and the robot hardware. This is an interactive webinar where you can ask questions, make comments and suggestions, and even have the opportunity to win a cyber:bot, just by attending! Educators, students and micro:bit users are encouraged to attend.

    Webinar is at 2:00 p.m. Pacific Standard Time.
