The perfect solution for everybody to learn, practice and build Robots and Programming. Expand your robot with Makeblock or Lego parts. The computer boards used are Arduino based; open-source and programmable with PC (Windows, Mac OSX, Linux, or Google Chrome), and Phone/Tablet. mBlock software is downloadable free of charge and is based on the famous graphical language SCRATCH, and Arduino IDE.
STEAM is a way to teach how all things relate to each other, in school and in life. It’s more fun than traditional learning styles and makes more sense to all types of learners because it is based on the natural ways that people learn and are interested in things.
STEAM = Science & Technology interpreted through Engineering & the Arts, all based in Mathematical elements.
The World’s very first Scratch 2.0 branch that can upload a program into Arduino based boards. (which means the robot can run by itself without a computer)
Available for Windows, Apple OSX, Linux and Chrome
Make sure you select the right mBot version in the bundle you select on our mBot page. Options are color (Blue or Purple), and Bluetooth or 2.4G communication.
mBlock which is most probably one of the most downloaded Scratch programs, is currently using Scratch 2.0.
Scratch 3.0 is being created and will most probably be ready the first quarter of 2018. Makeblock will then also release mBlock 5, which is based on Scratch 3.0.
