The BBoard has just the right components to enable rich engaging lessons, but cheap enough for any department budget.  Each board contains:

  • Red / yellow / green LED
  • Mini speaker (capable of outputting tones of varying frequency)
  • Left / right button (heavy duty and durable)
  • Light sensor (a high quality sensor providing a linear response to visible light)

Classroom hardened

It has been designed to be classroom hardened; the I/O pins are recessed to reduce the chances of being bent and the circuitry has surge protection so that delicate components cannot be damaged by incorrect wiring.

All boards are manufactured in the UK using materials that are CE approved to be used in schools.
