Overview

Know electronics and want to learn programming? Or know programming and want to learn electronics? Learn both side-by-side with BASIC Stamp Activity Kit!

Want to make your own inventions? Learn circuit-building and programming at the same time with the BASIC Stamp microcontroller! It’s a tiny on-board computer like the ones found in many electronic devices. Discover how common components work as you go step-by-step through 40 hands-on activities in the 350-page What’s a Microcontroller? text. Side-by-side schematics and wiring diagrams give you confidence in building the circuits, and each example program is followed by a detailed explanation so you learn as you go.

Once you've mastered the basics, you can expand your horizons with Robotics with the Boe-Bot, Smart Sensors and Applications, Understanding Signals, and other Parts & Text Kits in the Stamps in Class series.

Key Features:

  • Build simple circuits with schematics and wiring diagrams
  • Write programs in PBASIC to control the circuits
  • Send signals by blinking LEDs
  • Sense contact with pushbuttons
  • Read a dial using a potentiometer
  • Measure light with a phototransistor
  • Control motion with a servo motor
  • Play tunes on a piezo speaker
  • Display data on a 7-segment LED
  • Combine several circuits to prototype an invention
