JumpStart – mBot
JumpStart – mBot is a great way for children to learn electronics, robotics & programming. It is a unique online course that combines the power of digital teaching with educational robotic kit for hands-on learning. It is a stepping stone into the world of robotics and visual programming. Robotics as a field has seen tremendous amount of applications around us in the recent times, in households and industries. Through this course, your child will receive access to an exclusive mBot robot kit, which is sourced from a renowned global educational kits manufacturer. The online modules are specially designed to fuel young minds by teaching them to build robots and learn robotics online by introducing them to the components of a robot, with a special focus around the sensor technologies. The course also takes them one step ahead by introducing concepts of block-based programming, which will help them learn to build a functional robot.
Ultimately, this comprehensive course provides real-world knowledge of how robotics are being used in our day-to-day lives and by the end of this course, your child will have built a robot and programmed it to perform certain actions.
