Additional book resources are included with the BASIC Stamp Editor Software as PDF files. These books are a good source of information about regarding more Commands.


  1. Explain what you should do with your Boe-Bot at the end of your programming session when you are leaving for the day? (hint: 3-position switch, batteries)

When we are done with the programming session, we should disconnect the power. This will ensure for the batteries to last longer. Move the 3-position switch to position-0 by pushing it to the left.
