The Makeblock mBot is the perfect way to introduce robotics and programming to young makers. Not only can the mBot be assembled using the step-by-step instructions and pre-written code, but it encourages modification and expansion with the rest of the Makeblock kits and add-ons. With the introduction of STEM and STEAM-based curriculum in schools, mBot provides a hands-on experience with robotics.

Batteries aren't included with the mBot, pick up one of these rechargeable batteries for a perfect fit with your mBot and it's inbuilt charger.

mBot is easy to program via Scratch 2.0, Javascript, or C++ via the Arduino IDE. You can connect it to your computer via USB or Bluetooth. This makes it the perfect coding platform to learn skills which are used in schools and industries around the world. 

This is the Bluetooth version which allows you to connect to Bluetooth devices and upload your programs wirelessly. This is the most popular option in schools and classrooms if you're using tablets and mobile devices. There's also a 2.4Ghz model which connects to your computer using a 2.4Ghz wireless USB adapter.

  1. Review by Jason verified purchaser

    The Makeblock Mbot was a great present for my sons 9th Birthday. On opening the first thing I noticed was how well made and packaged the components were. Following the instructions the Mbot was simple to put together and we were up and running in no time. Once it was going there are so many ways to control the Mbot, from the IR remote, to the iOS app, to working through the coding modules. Highly recommended. (Posted on 28/04/2018)

    We got the MBot for my sons 8th birthday. He has loved learning some basics of coding using the app that runs with it so far. looking forward to see what he is able to do with it as his knowledge grows. (Posted on 13/02/2018)
