Start from some lessons

We have created some lessons about graphical programming and robotics to  help teachers or kids get started easier.

Scratch 2.0 The Adventures of Mike

We suggest you start learning graphical logical programming with Scratch 2.0 The Adventures of Mike,then learn how to use Scratch2.0 to interact with mBot with the book mBlock Kids maker rocks with robots

Scratch 2.0 the adventures of Mike has nine chapters with different projects. Kids can explore the world of Scratch 2.0 by creating a lot of interactive stories, games and animation in the virtual world, aiming to help kids learn basic logical programming and know how the Scratch2.0 works. More resources about Scratch2.0 https://scratch.mit.edu/.

mBlock Kids maker rocks with robots

Kids maker rocks with the robots has twelve chapters with different projects. It can guide kids to enjoy fun of programming mBot in a lot of game scenes for learning graphic programming, electronics, robotics.

Or it may be easier for you getting started with mBot by a simple example: light RGB LEDs
