If you're looking to help students gain confidence in coding while transitioning from block-based to text-based programming, then look no further than mBlock. This block-based programming language is designed to help students understand the fundamental concepts of coding by allowing them to drag and drop code blocks, making it an intuitive and engaging experience.

But that's not all. With mBlock, students can seamlessly transition from block-based programming to microPython, which encourages them to learn high-level object-oriented languages. This transition is made even easier with just one click, allowing students to see the relationship between block-based and text-based coding. This not only helps them to learn faster but also helps them to become more independent coders.

Once students are comfortable with microPython, they can move on to Python 3, which is a powerful text-based programming language used in AI, IoT, and Data Science. By exploring Python 3, students can become true problem solvers and independent thinkers, with the ability to tackle complex coding challenges with ease.
