mBlock Software

Coding as Easy as Drag-and-Drop

mBlock’s colorful and modularized drag-and-drop graphical blocks make it easy for novice users to program mBot without worrying about tricky syntax. This block-based code is translated into Arduino C code, mBot’s native programming language, with a click of a button. More experienced students can view and edit the C code from within mBlock, making the move to text-based languages more intuitive.

mBlock App for iOS and Android

Recommended for grades 4-5

The mBlock app is a game-based programming software for STEM education. Without any prior knowledge, students can start programming mBot through step-by-step tutorials amd games, and can then personalize their mBots with newly-learned programming skills.

mBlock App requires Android 4.3 or higher or iPhone 4S/iPad 3 or newer and iOS 9.0 or higher.
