Makeblock mBot is a STEM education robot for beginners in Australia.
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
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.

mBot compatible add-ons:
Very easy to setup and start using. My 8 year old has had a great time so far creating a custom control interface and making his bot sing. Arrived in good time despite the Victorian postal strike.
This was a birthday present greeted with enthusiasm but yet hear more as birthday boy went to a school camp on the same day.Have yet to hear more
I have been using mBots for teaching and love them as teaching tools. I needed to order more and went straight to Pakronics because they are so quick. They arrived on the second day after ordering.
Super fast service
Have fun and learn simple programming with mBot
The mBot is a great little Arduino based robot for introducing both kids and adults to simple programming using a Scratch based drag and drop tools. It was easy to assemble and worked first time. it is worth paying the extra for the rechargeable battery.
