Vernier Software & Technology Offers New Activities for mBot™ Robot

Publish date:

Vernier Software & Technology recently launched Coding with mBot: Self-Driving Vehicles activities module written for the mBot™ by MakeBlock. Students can use the mBot robot and Vernier-created activities to master introductory coding and programming skills through hands-on, standards-aligned learning.

Each mBot robot comes equipped with line-following and range-detecting sensors and 40 well-designed parts. After constructing the robots using the detailed building instructions, students can program the robots using the free, Scratch-based mBlock software available for Windows, macOS, and Chrome™ OS. Younger students can use the free, game-based mBlock app with iOS and Android™ devices to learn the basics of programming.
