mBot is a STEAM education robot for beginners, that makes teaching and learning robot programming simple and fun. With just a screwdriver, the step by step instructions, and a study schedule, children can build a robot from scratch and experience the joys of hands-on creation.
mBot is an all-in-one solution to enjoy the hands-on experience of programming, electronics, and robotics. Working with mBlock inspired by Scratch 2.0, connecting with computers or smart devices via Bluetooth or 2.4G (by different version), this easy-to-assemble mBot provides infinite possibilities for you to learn STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics).
mBot can be easily assembled within 15 minutes when following the directions. However, you can also create your own unique robot by experimenting with the parts. There are hundreds of add-on parts and packages that you can use to design and create your own custom mBot. Unleash your imagination.
The Blockly App is a great way to start learning entry-level coding skills. By combining coding with games, it attracts new coders to overcome challenges and have fun learning in the process. No matter what your child’s skill level is, the Blocky App is a perfect learning tool to educate children in all functions of the mBot. Children can also create their own commands by simply dragging and dropping codes in the easy to use App. Watch mBot respond in real time.
Contains 38 assembly parts that can be assembled in 10 minutes and color-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 to learn programming, control the robot, and realize multiple functions from the robot.
Create something entirely new with the mBot robot kit. The mBot robot kit is 100% compatible with major building blocks pieces. Like magic, you can create a whole new robot by combining mBot pieces with other type building pieces. Encourage your child to combine pieces from their old building kits for more fun activities. By doing so, you can help improve their creativity and stimulate your child’s interest in science at the same time.
mBot has 4 expansion ports, and can connect to more than 100 kinds of electronic modules. Children can use a variety of add-on packs and more than 500 parts on the Maker’s Platform to build a variety of imaginative shapes. During construction, they will learn about the principles of electronics and mechanics and lay the foundations for understanding robots. mBot is also compatible with LEGO bricks meaning gameplay can continue to grow over time.
