Linkbot Labs

Start your students on the path to success by connecting them with Linkbot Labs.

Recognizing that educators are working harder than ever to prepare eager learners for our technologically advanced world inspired Barobo to collaborate with award winning STEM educators to develop a CCSS and NGSS aligned click through curriculum. Teachers are free to monitor student progress as they interactively learn to program using industry standard Python and C/C++. Together students can persevere and collaborate through coding tasks that result in immediate feedback from a Linkbot, which fosters self-correction, reflection, and critical thinking skills. The teacher is free to rove through and monitor a classroom full of enthusiastic young programmers.

Linkbot Labs is beneficial for middle school through junior college students. Strengthen your district by implementing an engaging programming pathway.

High School

Incorporating Linkbots into classrooms heightens engagement levels; students become hooked and strive to learn more. Barobo partnered with the UC Davis C-STEM center to offer A-G approved Linkbot courses. These turn classrooms into 21st Century learning environments where students are inspired to dive into core curriculum in a meaningful and applicable pathway. Linkbot Labs, CCSS and NGSS aligned curriculum, is an individualized classroom experience where students click through programming content at their own pace. Combining Linkbots with Linkbot Labs creates a student centered classroom where young programmers are inspired to collaborate and persevere through material that prepares them for both college and careers.

  • Abstract programming becomes concrete and attainable
  • Students become proficient in industry standard languages
  • No prior programming experience is necessary for teachers and students

Middle School

Linkbots interactively teach students marketable 21st century programming skills.

The Linkbot, an engaging and tangible device that students program, provides immediate feedback for self-reflection and correction.

College

Linkbots are versatile tools for laboratory research.

Simplify research by using the modular Linkbot for labs. It is easy to get started, Arduino-compatible, Raspberry Pi friendly, loaded with absolute encoding, accelerometer, Battery and ZigBee. All accessories can be easily interchanged with quick SnapConnector mounting surface technology. If specific parts are needed, they can be created from the library of open source hardware accessories for 3D printing. Linkbots can be programmed in Python and C/C++.

  • Linkbots can be used with LabVIEW and NI myRIO hardware
  • Pose teaching programs the Linkbots with your hands; no programming language knowledge is necessary
  • Bump connect allows you to connect and control multiple modules without a computer
