New project-help with component recs

need a little help deciding on final summer robotic project components. Kids are stoked to get started with the eeg brain control bit:) Here is the list. Please fill in gaps or point in different direction re breakout boards, kits, etc.
already purchased-
-emotiv epoc+/community sdk
-rPi3 x 2 (undecided on operating system as sdk supports several) - good for other projects too!
considering the following...
- ? Parallax ActivityBot -seems to have good hackable components
- ? Parallax crawler kit to be modified and retrofitted to 3d printed exoskeleton
- ? Propeller Hat rPi uplink to Parallax microcontroller

  • Need input, Stephanie!

    What grades? How many kids? How many hours is your class/lab/camp? What have they done already? Arduino? Spin? BASIC?
    "When you make a thing, a thing that is new, it is so complicated making it that it is bound to be ugly. But those that make it after you, they don’t have to worry about making it. And they can make it pretty, and so everybody can like it when others make it after you."

  • Hi @toddkitchens,

    You should definitely contact Miguel at Parallax support - He will be able to share some great ideas, or put you in touch with the right person.

    Support at Parallax are a fantastic resource to help you get all the parts you need. Nothing worse than starting a project before finding a missing module, cable or connector! :)
