About this title


Most introductory programming classes bore students with exercises that are dull and irrelevant. Even with proper examples, many programming languages add to the student's frustration because they require an understanding of object oriented principles and cryptic syntax before anything remotely interesting can be accomplished. RobotBASIC addresses both of these problems. It's easy-to-learn syntax rewards and motivates students by letting them see immediate results. An integrated robot simulator lets students develop logical thinking skills while solving stimulating problems without the costs and hassles of purchasing and maintaining a real robot. Furthermore, RobotBASIC is FREE so schools have no acquisition costs, no upgrade fees, and no site licenses. Students can download their free copy so homework assignments are never an issue. Visit for complete information and your free copy. "Robots in the Classroom" puts fun back in learning.
