The MBot is an engaging robot that can be used with beginning coders, and expands to be a great resource for more advanced coders as well.
The MBot is more fragile than some of the robots that were designed for younger children, so extra care is needed for these robots. When programming the MBot, it is best to lay the MBot on its back, or put something under it that takes its tires off the desk; if it drives off a student’s desk, it will break something – likely one of the motors that power the wheels!!
To use MBot with a Chromebook, you will need to install the mLink extension to your profile and your students’ profiles.
