mBot is a STEAM education robot for beginners, that makes teaching and learning robot programming simple and fun. With just a screwdriver, the 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.
Easy-to-use: The robot science kit is based on mBot, an easy to assemble robot that can be installed with just one screwdriver.
Color-coded : Color coded modules make connecting the sensors and actuators child’s play.
Before playing with mBot, you need to build it. For details, see Build mBot.
mBot provides three preset modes. After building it, you can start to have fun with these modes. For more information about the preset modes, see Use the Preset Modes of mBot.
To control mBot in your own way and explore more functions of mBot, you can program it with mBlock 5. See Program mBot with mBlock 5. This easy to use graphical programming software opens up the extensive range of abilities and functions of your robot.
