mBot is an all-in-one solution for kids to enjoy the hands-on experience about programming, electronics, and robotics. Working with mBlock inspired by Scratch 2.0, controlled by Bluetooth, this easy-to-assemble mBot provides infinite possibilities for your kid to learn STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics).
Contains 38 assembly parts that can be assembled in 10 minutes and colour-labeled RJ25 ports for convenient wiring, making sure more time can be spent on programming and creativity.
Drag-and-drop graphical programming software mBlock developed based on Scratch 2.0 provides a quick way for kids to learn programming, control the robot, and realize multiple functions from the robot.
mBot is all about fun and creativity. It comes with various basic pre-assembled options, including obstacle-avoidance car, line-following vehicle, remote control car, and can be used in multiple games like balloon bursting game, soccer playing, sumo, and etc.
The mechanical body of the mBot is compatible with Makeblock platform and most of Lego parts, while the electronic parts of it is developed based on the Arduino open source ecosystem. This makes sure that the mBot has infinite extensibility, using any mechanical parts and electronic modules you need to turn it into your "dream robot".
To help teachers, parents, or kids get started easier and faster, you will also find that we provide online manuals and two online courses that will be updated regularly. These online tutorials are developed and maintained by teachers, especially scratch teachers, at home and abroad.
