PicoBoard Lending Library for 2011-2012
The Institute for Computing Education (ICE) at Georgia Tech has 30 PicoBoard kits that we can lend to schools. Each kit comes in a bag with the PicoBoard and mini USB cable. Each kit needs to be returned sorted and counted. You will have to leave a deposit of $50.00 when you borrow up to 8 kits and a deposit of $100.00 when you borrow up to 15 kits. If the kits are not returned sorted and counted the deposit will be forfeited. Also, any missing or broken parts will be deducted from the deposit (except for small connectors). If you choose to leave the deposit in the form of a check make it payable to the "Georgia Institute of Technology". The check will be returned with a confirmation letter if the kits are returned on time and in good condition (sorted, counted, and with all parts).
Each school can borrow up to 15 of the kits at a time for a time period up to 3 weeks during the school year. We use the kits in our summer camps and teacher workshops in the summer. The teacher is responsible for picking up the kits from Georgia Tech and for returning the kits to Georgia Tech unless other arrangements have been made. The sign-up is first come first served.

Please allow five business days between return date and pickup date for sorting and checking; five days are also needed to approve your request. Approved requests will be added to this list.
Please note that you will need to install a driver in order to use the PicoBoards with Scratch. You can download the drivers from http://www.picocricket.com/picoboardsetupUSB.html. Once you download the driver click on it to install it. Then start Scratch and plug in the PicoBoard. If the PicoBoard is recognized you will see lights near the slider. If it isn't recognized you can set the com port by following the instructions here.
