Makeblock - learning and fun
Makeblock is a brand that was founded in 2013 by a young Chinese engineer and inventor Jasen Wang. The main concept behind the company was to create easily accessible, easy-to-use means to bring your own electronic projects to life. These tools were to include software as well as the necessary hardware, jigs, electronic components, and construction accessories. Today, Makeblock products are available in more than 140 countries around the world, and the brand is one of the leading companies in creating STEAM education support solutions used by more than 25,000 schools.
STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) is an innovative educational concept that is being used in more and more schools around the world. STEAM involves science-based learning, experiential learning, and creative problem solving. Children taught through STEAM learn how to develop their own projects and realize their creative vision, how to work in a group, how to use the scientific method to conduct and analyze experiments, and how to draw logical conclusions from processes. Although STEAM is a methodology designed for school-age children and adolescents, it also works well for pre-school education or teaching adults.
Makeblock robot extensions
In this category you will find extensions for the popular mBot and mBot Ranger robots. We offer, for example, a set with servo and construction parts for mBot - with this add-on you can equip the robot with mechanical hands or rotating head, and also build him a luminous shield. Another interesting proposition is the Variety Gizmos kit, which fits both mBot and Ranger. It allows you to add many new features to both devices and change the appearance of the robot. Thanks to Variety Gizmos you will be able to create, among other things, a robot that avoids obstacles, a barrier with a turnstile, a timer, a dancing or head-moving kitten, a robot with a flashing tail, a sunflower or a magic stick. In this section you will also find the "Light and Sound" kit, thanks to which your mBot will gain the ability to transform into a mechatronic scorpion, a robot following the light or a smart desk lamp controlled by voice commands. Assembly kits are also available, such as a set of fasteners for mBot. We also offer a wide selection of individual accessories for Makeblock robots, including grippers and mini grippers, controllers, LED displays, and many other products.
