This Picoboard is a piece of hardware that allows your Scratch projects to interact with the outside world. Unique programming ‘blocks’ allow for easy inclusion of sensor feedback into your program. Specially designed to bring extra fun into your child’s learning of programming techniques and understanding of technology.

The board itself contains a slider (linear potentiometer), light sensor, audio sensor, four crocodile clip resistance sensors and a pushbutton. It connects to your computer via USB and has a standard micro-USB connection on the board. This is the only product you need to get sensor input into your projects.

Designed for educators and beginners, the Picoboard for Scratch® is a great way to expand your child’s potential as a programmer, and a fantastic driver for new ideas and possibilities for programming.
