One STEM/STEAM solution for all ages…
Transforming the STEAM Classroom Experience
We also provide teachers with the resources and support they need to create engaging curriculum; facilitating students in real-world learning.
Watch the video and listen to what Bob Smitka of the Roseville Science & Engineering Team (REST) and his students have to say about their BrainPad STEM/STEAM experience.
Input Process Output, is an intuitive 3 step pathway; allowing students to immediately see the results of their code.
Develop using Visual Studio with C# Visual Basic
The BrainPad is programmed using Microsoft’s Visual Studio, the most popular development environment used by professionals.
If you aren’t a programmer, BrainPad has you covered with pre-designed STEM/STEAM software that you simply download and then teach!
I had an opportunity to introduce the BrainPad to the students in our after-school engineering club, and simply put, it was an instant hit! Want to display text and manipulate simple graphics? BrainPad has it. Want to control LEDs? BrainPad. Light sensors, temperature sensors and accelerometer? BrainPad. This board had everything that a beginner needed and more, to see real action-based outcomes culminating from their work.
In 2016, Gary Beaver (GHI Electronics) brought BrainPads to Microsoft’s DigiGirlz Day, and the excitement throughout the sessions was palpable. When our VP and CIO asked what was the best thing during the day, several students yelled out “Brain Pad”. Then he said, “I’m not sure I know what a brain pad is, but it sounds like you are having fun.”
We are now one week away from the second year where we will use the BrainPad.
We explain how to download and run MicroPython on your BrainPad.
Today were talking about the technology behind transferring data serially over a wire…
We show you how to update the BrainPad’s firmware…
