PICAXE is a simple microcontroller that you can use for basic electronic projects. The best thing about PICAXE is that you can start programming it using Blockly (scratch-like) programming! It's a great way to start electronic projects without the complications of difficult programming.

PICAXE is a chip, not an electronics board. You create the electronics board yourself! Ask about it in STEM and we'll get you started with your very own PICAXE 08-M2. You can even take your projects home to work on.

Programming your chip
1) Programming your chip requires a USB cable. Before you begin, download and install these drivers.
2) Download the PICAXE programming software here
3) Plug your developed electronics into the USB cable and program your board!
