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.
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.
The Makeblock App is a piece of powerful operating software. It enables children to control their mBot at the touch of a button, or combine the preset control settings any way they choose. mBot is even simple enough for children who have not yet learnt to read. Do you want to explore more complicated functions? Try mBlock 3 block-based programming. By simply dragging, dropping, and combining command blocks, just like building blocks, children can control mBot’s every move and create their own personal robot.
