Meet Ranger, the 3-in-1 Education Robot Kit

From $209.99

mBot Ranger is an advanced version of mBot, that comes with 3 preset forms, for 3 times the fun! From construction and operation through programming, Ranger allows children to receive STEAM education in a simple and fun way. Ranger also gets children started on robot programming, advancing with them as they grow and develop their problem-solving abilities. Ranger also features 6 integrated sensors for expanded functionality, 10 expansion interfaces for greater extensibility, Block-based programming, and gamified learning.

There are two ways in which you can direct Ranger without the need for programming.

  1. Open the Makeblock App. With one click you can use the remote control driving function, voice control or the “Draw and Run” function.
  1. Use the Makeblock Bluetooth Remote Controller to control Ranger. There are 15 buttons and 2 joysticks, making its operation smooth and easy. Positive experiences operating the robot can help children form a bond with Ranger quickly, and further stimulate their interest in programming.

Or, you can control Ranger using Block-based and/or Arduino C programming by using mBlock Blockly or the mBlock app.

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