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.

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.
