What is mBot?

 mBot, the adorable robot that helps children around the world in gaining hands-on experience in programming, electronics, and robotics!

Kids can learn to program with mBlock, inspired by Scratch 2.0.

Connect it wirelessly and effortlessly to computers or smart devices via Bluetooth or 2.4G (this version).

The easy-to-assemble mBot also has a variety of add-on packs, providing infinite possibilities to foster STEM learning (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics).

What's New? – Children Safeguard

Safety first! Compared to the previous version, mBot V1.1 comes with a casing specially designed for protecting the main control board. Meanwhile, the casing is atomised to safeguard children's eyes from the glare of the onboard LED.

  
  

What's New? – Better Auxiliary Wheel

The omni-directional wheel of the previous version has been replaced by a mini nylon caster wheel that performs better when moving in any direction. It also dramatically reduces the little clack sound caused by a steel ball.

Contracted But Not Simple

Contains 38 assembly parts that can be put together in 10 minutes and colour labeled RJ25 ports for convenient wiring, which means more time can be spent on cultivating skills in programming and creativity!

  
  

Graphical Programming

Drag-and-drop graphical programming software mBlock developed based on Scratch 2.0 provides a quick way to learn programming, control the robot, and realise multiple functions from the robot. Know more here.

 

Fun, and Fun

mBot is all about fun and creativity. It comes with various basic pre-assembled options, including obstacle-avoidance car, line-following vehicle, remote control car, and can be used in a variety of games such as a balloon bursting game, soccer playing, sumo-wrestling, and etc.

  

  

Infinite Extensibility

The mechanical body of the mBot is compatible with Makeblock platform and most Lego parts. Its electronic parts were developed based on the Arduino open source ecosystem. This makes sure that the mBot has infinite extensibility, allowing anyone to use additional mechanical parts and electronic modules to turn it into the "dream robot".

Unique Curriculum System

You're not alone! To help teachers, parents, or children get started, there are online manuals and two online courses that are updated regularly. These online tutorials are developed and maintained by teachers, especially Scratch teachers, at home and abroad. Know more here.

  


What's New?

Note: mBot V1.1 - STEM Educational Robot Kit comes with one IR remote control as a gift. The default program of mBot has been optimised for this change. Users can check whether mBot is functioning using the onboard button.
