Meet mBot – Construct, Control and Code

From $129.99

mBot is a STEAM education robot for beginners, that makes teaching and learning robot programming simple and fun. With just a screwdriver, 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.

You can direct and control mBot in many ways. You can use an Android device, an Apple device, a computer, or even the Makeblock Bluetooth Remote Controller! For more information, head on to our Getting Started with mBot page.

Powerful, Educational and Fun: This is mBot

mBot comes equipped with 4 connection interfaces and 7 electronic modules and, together with add-on packs and their own code, let children turn their robot into a dancing cat, a smart lamp, and other creative projects. mBot is also compatible with LEGO blocks for even sensibility.

Why mBot?

  • Easy Building: mBot is an easy to assemble robot that can be installed with just one screwdriver. Color coded modules make connecting the sensors and actuators child’s play.
  • Reliable: Industrial quality materials ensure practice with close to real-world applications and durability.
  • Develop Logical Thinking Skills in Kids: Through hands-on and coding experience, kids are able to understand the connection between coding and the real world. They can learn to think logically, observe dedicatedly and try to solve their problems independently.
  • Most Beginner-friendly Coding Designs for Kids: Block-based coding utilizes a drag-and-drop color block for programming, this is super kid-friendly since they don’t have to type the code themselves. It lowers the threshold of coding and simplifies the procedures which allow children to learn programming easily and happily.
  • Expand the Fun with Add-on Packs: mBot comes equipped with 4 connection interfaces and 7 electronic modules and, together with add-on packs and their own code, let children turn their robot into a dancing cat, a smart lamp, and other creative projects. mBot is also compatible with LEGO blocks for even sensibility.
  • Endless invention: Compatible with 500+ Makeblock mechanical parts, 100+ electronic parts, Lego bricks, Arduino and Raspberry Pi, mBot will bring kids lots of fun through endless invention.
  • Wireless Programming by Bluetooth Dongle: The Bluetooth dongle will offer mBot a smooth, stable, and effective wireless experience. This dongle can help you avoid messy wires hassle and improve the efficiency of teaching and presentation, especially in classrooms and competitions.
