Stamps in Class "Mini Projects"

The Stamps in Class Program introduces microcontroller programming and electronics side-by-side using the BASIC Stamp 2 and Board of Education or HomeWork Board. Each tutorial in the series contains a set of hands-on, do-it-yourself,activities featuring a theme such as inventions, robotics, sensors or process control.

As a supplement to our Stamps in Class texts, this page provies an instructional bank of additional classroom projects. Designed to help engage students with relatable projects, each "Mini Project" contains full source code, "How it Works" explanations, schematics, and wiring diagrams. In order to promote self-study, many projects are accompanied with an introductory video highlighting the important aspects of the project.

The Stamps in Class texts that are prerequisites to many of the Mini Projects are available for PDF download. To see the whole series, click on the Stamps in Class Program Overview link at www.parallax.com/education.Then, click on a book to go to that kit's product page where you will find the PDF under the Downloads & Resources heading at the bottom of the page.

Happy Developing!
