The Board of Education (BOE) was originally designed in coordination with our educational customers to teach microcontroller programming and this remains today as the most popular application. The majority of the Stamps in Class student guides (i.e. Robotics with the Boe-Bot) requires a BASIC Stamp® 2 module with a Board of Education carrier board.

Even if you aren’t using our SIC curriculum, the ease of use and expandibility make the BOE an ideal project board for BASIC Stamp 2 microcontroller experimentation. With the included a handy power switch and a servo jumper, it surpasses the features of previous BOE versions.

Our Board of Education programming board does not include a BASIC Stamp 2 module so you will need to purchase one separately or find a starter kit which matches your needs.

Potential options with a BASIC Stamp 2 module (BS2-IC) include the designed-for-education BOE Full Kit and the most comprehensive BOE-based selection, the BASIC Stamp Discovery Kit.
