Pi-Bot teaches students about robotics and C programming

Engineering education startup STEM Center USA has created a Kickstarter campaign for Pi-Bot, an affordable Arduino-based robot that you can use to teach students how to build their own robots and program in C.

While the Pi-Bot might sound like it uses a Raspberry Pi computer, it doesn’t. It’s named after the mathematical constant because of the shape of its chassis.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.


Pi-Bot comes with a complete kit for assembling and programming the robot, as well as a manual and curriculum for students. The device includes a four-speed gearbox, a light sensor and an ultrasonic sensor.

If you’re interested in fiddling with the Pi-Bot, you can pick one up for a pledge of $75 or more. STEM Center expects to begin shipping the first units out in June of this year.
