The GoBoxEd Classroom Kit comes with 5 full GoPiGo robot car kits, 5 sets of GoBoxEd sensors (9 different ones) and 12 printed missions to accomplish with your robot! If you already have the GoPiGo, select the “Mission Only” option.

Clear

We’ve taken the popular GoBox subscription and packaged it all together for educators — GoBoxEd. The GoBoxEd Classroom Kit comes with 5 slightly GoBoxEd kits. Rather than shipping monthly over the course of a year like the original GoBox subscription, you’ll get all of your materials together. This will allow for educators to go at your own pace for your classroom, after school program or camp.

GoBoxEd Missions not only cover the basics of learning Scratch, a simple drag and drop programming language developed by MIT, but also integrate other concepts like biomimicry and natural disasters. View a short description of each mission here.

You get five sets of the following: The GoPiGo2 full robot kit (see details below), 9 sensors and 12 beautifully designed Mission booklets that take you step by step through building and coding your robot! (note:  the cardboard garage mentioned in Mission 1, and some extra craft items like pipe cleaners, stickers and zip ties are not included in this classroom kit)

The missions are in a story form of step-by-step instructions that take you through the whole experience. You’ll have full access to our video library and support forums as well. The GoBox sensor set includes these sensors: light sensor, sound sensor, ultrasonic sensor, buzzer, LED, motion sensor, button sensor, infrared sensor, and the brand new GoPiGo Line Follower.

GoBoxEd was designed for beginners, and the content of the Missions teaches the Scratch programming language for the GoPiGo, with the very last mission being a bridge to Python. Read more about how we put together the missions here.

The GoBoxEd Classroom Kit includes the following items:

  • 5 GoPiGo Base Kits
  • 5 Raspberry Pi 3
  • 5 ethernet cables
  • 5 power wall supplies
  • 5 microSD Cards with Dexter Industries Custom Software (educators should check out CINCH)
  • 5 mini wifi dongles
  • 5 light sensors
  • 5 sound sensors
  • 5 ultrasonic sensors
  • 5 buzzers
  • 5 red LEDs
  • 5 motion sensors
  • 5 button sensors
  • 5 infrared sensors
  • 5 GoPiGo line followers
  • 5 Missions 1-12 printed booklets

Items we recommend getting to go with your GoBoxEd Classroom Kit:

  • plastic storage bins (our recommendation for this coming soon)
  • craft supplies to allow students to decorate their GoPiGo robot to look like an animal for the Biomimicry Mission 3
  • zip ties to secure sensors to the GoPiGo robot (1.8mm or smaller diameter to fit through the hole on the sensor)
  • empty boxes to construct an obstacle course & garage for Mission 2

We recommend the storage bin. It will fit the assembled robot and accessories. Also, it comes with 6, so you have one extra for the teacher and other accessories, like other sensors, that you might buy for the class to share: http://amzn.to/1Z7BjOZ

Mission 2:

Next Generation Science Standards

  • 3-5-ETS1-1 — Define a simple design problem reflecting a need or a want that includes specified criteria for success and constraints on materials, time, or cost.
  • 3-5-ETS1-2 — Generate and compare multiple possible solutions to a problem based on how well each is likely to meet the criteria and constraints of the problem
  • 3-5-ETS1-3 — Plan and carry out fair tests in which variables are controlled and failure points are considered to identify aspects of a model or prototype that can be improved.
  • MS-ETS1-1 — Define the criteria and constraints of a design problem with sufficient precision to ensure a successful solution, taking into account relevant scientific principles
  • MS-ETS1-2 — Evaluate competing design solutions using a systematic process to determine how well they meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.
  • MS-ETS1-3 — Analyze data from tests to determine similarities and differences among several design solutions to identify the best characteristics of each that can be combined into a new solution to better meet the criteria for success
  • MS-ETS1-4 —  Develop a model to generate data for iterative testing and modification of a proposed object, tool, or process such that an optimal design can be achieved.
