Introduce your students to the coding skills they need to compete in our increasingly digital world. With mBot, a programmable STEM robot kit, students learn entry-level coding that extends beyond the screen and allows them to interact with the physical world.
Using mBlock™ software, based on Scratch, students easily program their mBot with drag and drop command blocks—prior coding experience is not required.
Each mBot features the following
- Easy assembly, no soldering
mBot assembles in 10–15 minutes and has color-labeled RJ25 ports for convenient wiring.
- Drag-and-drop graphical programming
mBlock app (IOS/Android) and software (Windows/OS/Chrome) are based on the popular Scratch software and provide a quick way to learn to code. As students advance, they can program mBot using the Arduino® IDE.
- Programmed for fun
mBot comes programmed with three preset control modes: obstacle-avoidance, line-following, and manual control to make implementing projects even easier.
- Wirelessly connected
mBot uses Bluetooth® wireless technology to automatically connect to mobile devices.
- Endless creations
mBot is compatible with the vast catalog of Makeblock platform components and most LEGO® pieces, so students are limited only by their imaginations.
- STEM Activities Module: Coding with mBot: Self-Driving Vehicles
- mBlock Software (free download)
- IR remote
Note: Batteries are not included. 4 AA batteries or a 3.7 V rechargeable battery pack is required for mBot. A CR2025 coin battery is needed for the remote.
mBlock programming software enables beginners to simply drag-and-drop command blocks to program their mBot without a need for coding experience.
