What will I learn?

mBot by makeblock is an entry-level educational robot kit. The reason we love mbot is because it is easy to build with the included assembly guide and it uses bock-based programming, just like Scratch. mBot is perfect for the maker community and for schools it offers gamified learning and even more fun with expansion packs.

What are you going to learn about?

In this FREE Learning Trunk, you’ll learn how mBot works and how to make the best use of it for lessons. You’ll learn how to do things like make the mBot react to light, or avoid objects and even follow a line, a little like modern cruise control systems in cars.
