The Entry-level education robot kit. mBot is a STEM education robot for beginners. mBot makes robot learning and programming easier, quicker and fun for educators and for the students.Children can built a robot using just a screwdriver as mBot contains a step-by-step instruction guide which can easily accommodated in the study schedule.
Gradually they will learn different types of robotic machinery and electronics parts. It will sharpen the grip over fundamentals of block based programming, this will help them develop their designing and logical thinking skills.
mBot is an all-in-one solution to enjoy the hands-on experience of programming, electronics, and robotics. Working with mBlock inspired by Scratch 2.0 , connecting with computers or smart devices via Bluetooth , this easy-to-assemble mBot provides infinite possibilities for you to learn STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics).
There are three main feature which makes mBot worth:
- Easy to build: mBot genrally takes 15-20 minuntes to assemble and has color-labaled RJ25 ports for convenient wiring.
- Intelligently controllable: mBot is having 3 preset programmed control modes, they are: Obastacle-Avoiidance,Line-following and manual control to make the implementation of the projects more easier.
- Drag-and-drop: mBlock app is now available on iOs app store and Android play store. It also has an web based application. It provides a quick way to learna nd write a code. At a later stage, students can also program the mBot using the Arduino IDE.
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 modular bricks meaning game play can continue to grow over time.3D building tutorials improve children’s spatial intelligence
mBot uses modular design. The electronic modules and main board 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.3D Construction Guide in the Makeblock App.
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 learned 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.

It was really easy. Goods arrived on time and in perfect condition. Great little robot too!my nephew loves it.
Excellent, works very well and fantastic service with fast delivery and easy payment
It was a gift to my nephew so I haven’t used it
Great service from Paktron
This has been a good learning experience for my son. He has put the robot together and is using it as part of a class with the plan of going in the Robo cup this year.
A STEAM workshop using mBot
This is my third mBot and I will be using it to present a STEM workshop next Monday on AI and Robotics. Starting with the AI and the NVIDIA Jetbot deep learning will be explored and applied to robotics. The following day I will go back to basics and use mBot and various optical navigation schemes such as line detectors and a Pixy2 camera to navigate mBot. mBot will be used as a fire fighting robot and will recognise water, fire and houses. Steel balls will be used to simulate water and a Grove electromagnet controlled by mBot will pickup the water and deliver it to houses near the fire. Hope that kids attending the working will develop a real fire fighting robot in the future. mBot is still the best supported simple robot for STEM education and encourages discovery,creativity and learning about robotics.
