The Genie Program It®- Activity Board is an innovative new product intended to teach programming to a wide range of individuals. Adapted for -Project Lead The Way" programs! There is no age barrier for this amazing tool. It hides all the complicated parts of a typical programming environment and lets you program a microcontroller by visually describing the logic using popular and well known flowchart symbols.
What you can do
It consists of a small board (PCB) that houses the electronics. There are two LEDs, a switch, a light sensor and a buzzer/speaker. With the help of an amazingly easy to use and beautifully done software and a programming cable (sold separately) you can program the Genie Program It" to blink the two LEDs on a specific sequence, or to respond to the pressing of the switch or to respond to changing light condition or to play a note or a complete tune sequence (there are many preprogrammed tunes to select from or you can create your own).

After you create a program, by using the Genie design studio, you send it, by the click of a mouse, to the Genie Program It" activity board (connected your computer with a USB cable) and it will start running immediately. It will continue running even if you turn the Genie Program It" activity board off, or if you replace the batteries, because it stores the program in internal memory.
What is included:
The Genie Program It" activity board is the simplest of the Genie family of products. Once you get familiar with it, you can move to other boards with more powerful features. You can control external devices (with relays) of directly connect servo motors and even stepper motors.
Base not included and you will need at least one download cable, #780080. Requires soldering.
