Teach With: The Scribbler 3 Robot

Teach with Scribbler 3

Now in its third iteration, the popular Scribbler robot is unique among Parallax products. Fully enclosed in a damage-resistant plastic shell, it is suitable for use with a wide range of students: middle school through university. This robot is perfect for those just getting started in robotics, or those who may not yet be ready for circuit-building robots like our Boe-Bot Robot or ActivityBot robot.


The Scribbler can be programmed using a tile-based GUI software, or our browser-based BlocklyProp programming tool. These graphics-based and block-based tools allows users to easily program their robot for line-following, autonomous navigation, object detection, and more. For more experienced users, the Scribbler has a hacker port to install additional sensors and can be programmed in the text-based Spin language via the Propeller Tool or Propeller IDE software.
