SKU MBL-030-1

The mBot-S is an entry-level robot kit that's part of the mBot series and targets students aged 8 and up. It is the upgraded version of the mBot. In addition to the standard features of the mBot, the mBot-S comes with an LED matrix, allowing students to customize and display images by programming LEDs. For educators at the elementary level and above, this is a great tool for incorporating STEAM into any class.

An integrated chassis, user-friendly design, and clear instructions make it easy for children to assemble the mBot-S in less than 30 minutes! After building, users can control the robot, play games via mobile apps, or write code with Makeblock’s visual programming software, mBlock 5.

By programming with mBlock, students can make their programs for the mBot-S visible in the physical world and observe the real effects of sound, light, and movement. The mBot-S also has three preset modes: Avoiding obstacles, line following, and manual control. By switching between modes, students can command the robot to automatically avoid obstacles, move along a line, or use the remote controller or companion software to manipulate the mBot-S to do whatever they'd like.

With just a screwdriver and the step-by-step instructions, students can build a robot from scratch and experience the joys of hands-on creation. As they go, they will learn about a variety of robotics machinery and electronic parts, grasp the fundamentals of block-based programming, and develop logical thinking and design skills.
