It’s cute, it’s fun and easy to assemble, it’s mBot by MakeBlock, the new educational robot based on Arduino! mBot is an all-in-one solution for beginners to enjoy a guided, hands-on experience with robotics, coding, and electronics.

Highlights
  • Based on Arduino open source platform
  • Easy to assemble within 15 mins
  • Simple colour coded wiring for easy addition of sensors, servos and more
  • Based on Scratch 2.0 and Arduino IDE
  • Support wireless connection via Bluetooth or 2.4Ghz WiFi
 

I have integrated this mBot within my year 8 program. The clear instructions are easy to interpret and assemble. I had students taking turns in groups to assemble and deconstruct the mBot. This helped students to become familiar with the various parts. We spent some time in class recognising the different electronic components on the PCB, so students had a clear understanding of its functions e.g. switch, LED, Sensor.

Students created there own mazes out of A4 Paper boxes. They needed to have 3 points which the mBot needed to go to (I have attached an example). Student then used mBlock software to program the mBot to go through their maze and go to the certain points. Students found the colour coordinated 'Code Blocks' easy to format. They used many skills through this process such as problem solving, numeracy and team collaboration skills.

Overall, I value the mBot to be an excellent resource for schools. I had to experiment and trial with many different tasks before I tried it with my students. I believe the students enjoyed the mBot experience and engaged with this innovative piece of technology. Unfortunately I will be unable to purchase a class set as my budget does not permit. I will endeavour to pursue leadership to find the $$$ to embed this within my curriculum.

We are finding them fun and quite easy to use. Have started this term and getting great responses and feedback from the kids and  the P and F which gave us the funds to buy the addition mbots. We now have enough for one between 2 kids for the upper years.

Easy to Assemble
Instead of messy, complicated breadboards and wires MakeBlock have ingeniously replaced standard wiring systems with colour coded RJ25 ports that makes wiring quick, easy and intuitive enough even for the youngest budding engineer.
Lego Compatible
The mechanical body of the mBot is compatible with the MakeBlock platform and most Lego parts. The electronics is developed on the Arduino open source ecosystem.
Wireless Control
What sets mBot apart from of others is it’s easy wireless control and programming. The mBot can be controlled by iOS and Android devices via Bluetooth. No need to plug it in to update your program simply upload it wirelessly. 2.4Ghz wireless module also available.
Graphical Coding
Drag-and-drop graphical programming software mBlock developed based on Scratch 2.0 provides a quick way to learn programming, control the robot, and realize multiple functions from the robot. 
  
Fun, fun, fun
mBot is all about fun and creativity. It comes with various basic pre-programmed activities, including obstacle-avoidance, line-following, remote control car, and can be used in multiple games like balloon bursting game, soccer playing, sumo, and etc.
Unique Curriculum System
To help teachers, parents, or children get started easier and faster, you will also find that we provide online manuals and two online courses that will be updated regularly. These online tutorials are developed and maintained by teachers, especially scratch teachers, at home and abroad.
