I was asked to post this

With the addition of the 15 seconds of autonomous robot operation in the 2003 FIRST challenge, the knowledge of PBASIC and the ability to debug autonomous mode problems is now a critical skill for FIRST teams.


Robotech Center will be hosting Parallax Inc's BASIC Stamp Educators Course in Nashua, NH.


It is a program for Technology & Robotic Enthusiasts conducted on July 1 & 2, 2003 at RoboTech Center, Nashua NH. The 2-day program will cover programming the BASIC Stamp Microcontroller with an emphasis on programming autonomous robots. Please visit http://www.robotechcenter.com for registration. This course is conducted by Parallax Inc's staff. Space is limited and will be done on a first come first serve basis.

The courses are designed for teachers and robot enthusiasts of FIRST - coaches, participants and others intending to improve their programming, electronics, and robotics skills. Course registration is $125 for the 2 day program. Registration can also be done at
