Over the weekend, please spend 1 hour to familiarize yourself with the Boe-Bot by reading the Parallax Getting Started Document (posted in Course Content). For further reference you may review Chapter 1 through the first part of Chapter 2 (pages 11-34) of the Boe-Bot Manual (posted in Course Content).
If possible, download and install the PBasic Stamp Editor to your personal computer to familiarize yourself with the menu and commands as you read the Getting Started Document. (https://www.parallax.com/downloads/basic-stamp-software –> download the first file “BASIC Stamp Editor Software for Windows” or “Mac BS2 Software”)
In class we will be doing some Activities noted in the manual but you should also prepare outside of class.
