The mBot Explorer Kit is an upgraded kit of the Makeblock star product mBot. It includes the original parts of the classic kit and further allows children to customize its LED dot-matrix screen.
As an educational and entertaining robot from Makeblock, the mBot Explorer Kit is quite easy to get started with, which makes it a perfect tool that helps beginners with their STEAM learning (science, technology, engineering, art and math). Children can build different forms of robots and learn how to program with the graphical programming software provided by Makeblock. In the process, children get hands-on experience of how fascinating the world of mechanics, electronics, controlling systems and computer science can be.
The Explorer Kit has a LED Matrix which is not included in the standard version. This kit allows makers to build three different shapes of mBot. The LED Matrix display is very versatile because children can program to customize the expressions, texts and weather reports on it.
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. Know more here.
