mBot

Ideal robot for children to build and code

 

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. As they go, they will learn about a variety of robotic machinery and electronic parts, get to grips with the fundamentals of block-based programming, and develop their logical thinking and design skills.

mBot, the adorable global sensation that helps children get smarter as they play

From the outset mBot, with its big adorable eyes and cute smiley face, has enthralled more than 4.5 million children worldwide. mBot is an educational playmate for children learning to build and program, and an excellent educational aid for teachers in STEAM [1] lessons. It is also a frequent heavyweight contender at large robot competitions, such as MakeX. mBot gets children to engage both their hands and their brain, encouraging them to exercise their interdisciplinary abilities while allowing them to experience the endless fun of creation at the same time.

Create a wide range of different shapes with mBot’s flexible body

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.

3D building tutorials improve children’s spatial intelligence

 

mBot uses modular design. The electronic modules and mainboard interface are colour coded so that the corresponding colours can be connected easily. All you need to get building is a screwdriver. We have also designed a 3D Construction Guide with simply worded instructions, that takes children through the complete step by step, and helps build their spatial intelligence.

With 3 intelligent control modes, controlling mBot is easy

 

Do you need to avoid obstacles ahead? Or follow the line using a fancy walk? Then flex those fingers, because mBot is ready to go! It comes with 3 preset control modes: ① Obstacle avoidance mode, mBot can automatically sense an obstacle ahead and change its path in time to avoid it; ② Line-follow mode, mBot can travel freely along various black and white lines; ③ Manual control mode, children can use the remote control or the Makeblock app to program mBot directly and explore its countless other possibilities.

Gamification makes learning programming endless fun

 

The mBolck Blocky gamified learning app makes learning and playing one and the same. The mBolck Blocky has designed game levels which are easy to understand and learn from, each new level adding to a child’s programming knowledge. Mr. Panda guides children through the app step by step, as they learn to program their mBot remotely, unlock different knowledge points, and master new programming skills one by one.

A Real Sense of Achievement.
