How fun is building a robot? The kids will learn about building, robotics, electronics, and programming (graphical). There are 38 parts that need to be assembled to build the robot. There is some wiring involved, but the Makeblock mBot uses RJ25 ports which make wiring easy and doable for small hands.
It comes with a graphical programming program and utilizes drag and drop graphics to help your kid learn some programming basics. The great part about the mBot is it can either be programmed via instructions to learn how to use it, or it can be completely customizable. There are options for it to follow a line and avoid obstacles. You can also play games with it including soccer, balloon bursting, and sumo. The fun just goes on and on!
