mBot is an entry-level robot for kids. It’s easy to build in 15 minutes with a building guide and 3D, step-by-step instructions. It comes with a free mblock App that allows you to program the robots to sing, dance, play games, and other things.
With a free mblock software, you can switch the coding language from Scratch to Ardunio C. Kids can start coding from drag-and-drop programming and then advance with Ardunio C. A game-based mblock App providing more than 60 programming game tasks, this allows kids to learn code easily and happily!
The mCore mainboard is based on the Arduino Uno and adapts an open-source construction. It can be connected to more than 100 types of electronic modules compatible with Arduino motherboards, and more than 500 parts on the Makeblock platform. This would greatly inspire kids with hands-on creativity.
