NEW PRODUCT – BlocklyProp Starter Kit


Learning to invent is fast and fun with no code-typing or circuit-soldering to slow things down. The BlocklyProp Starter Kit has all the hardware required to fully learn the Parallax’s Blockly visual programming tool in an educational environment, providing a natural first look into the C programming language at the same time.

BlocklyProp’s interlocking blocks with readable text introduce programming concepts in a visual, logical way that supports hands-on and inquiry learning. Blocks are provided for all of the sensors and accessories included in the Starter Kit. No software license is required to use BlocklyProp.

Whether you are equipping your makerspace, bringing coding to your classroom, learning about hardware and programming, or providing your students with the tools they need to bring their inventions to life, the BlocklyProp Starter Kit is as powerful as it is easy to use.
