mBot

Mbot is an educational robot for students to learn hands-on experience in the fields of graphical programming, electronics, and robotics.  It designed for STEAM Education. Mbot works several different ways, both with mobile devices and desktop computers.

mBots

For drag and drop programming, begin with the mBlock app, which is appropriate for students with little to no programming knowledge.  The makeblock app progresses to more imaginative thinking as students program their robots to move in various ways.  For more advanced drag and drop programming, students can use the mBlock software on either a mac or pc.  Links to more information about these tools can be found at http://learn.makeblock.com/en/software/ and at their new website http://www.makeblock.com/software/.

In addition to the basic mBots, there are kits or sensors that can be added in order to enhance the mBot to perform additional tasks. Kits can be found at http://store.makeblock.com/robot-kit-series-STEM or at their new website http://www.makeblock.com/steam-kits/.

Makeblock now has a new education site that has more information and resources for how to use their equipment.  http://education.makeblock.com/

For a basic tutorial on how this can be used, visit the ITC YouTube page at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2DfkvVmh21g.
