The Small Bear Project Shield is an upgrade of the Power Control Board used in the Small Bear Project class, which utilizes the printed circuit board technology for a smaller structure. It has a connector that receives a 9V power through a wall wart, converted to 5V with a voltage regulator. It also has a connector to plug in a computer power supply. The power source is selected with a switch. The assembled board is used to power a stuffed animal bear that is built and programmed in the class.
