BOEBot questions

by cgschaefer on Tue Jul 17, 2012 2:02 pm

I'm seriously thinking of using the BOEBot for Arduino as a teaching tool for a class in robotics. However, I have a few questions:

1) I'd like to be have the ability to stack a solderless breadboard above the Arduino BOE Shield to allow the students to prototype more complex circuits and to easily add other sensors, such as GPS. Does such a kit exist or do we need to make a platform of lexan or thin ply and drill the corner holes to fit the standoffs?
2) Are standoffs available that allow stacking of multiple boards? If so, does adafruit sell this hardware?

The "Board Of Education Shield" that comes with the BOEbot kit includes a small solderless breadboard.

It is also equipped with standard Arduino-footprint stacking headers so that more shields can be stacked. With stacking headers, standoffs are not required.

If more prototyping space is needed, an Adafruit ProtoShield is a good choice.
