There are a lot of companies out there in the STEM/STEAM maker space but none are doing it quite the way that Makeblock is. Makeblock takes the components of the DIY maker movement and turns them into projects that turn into a living learning environment. With Makeblock instead of just getting a robot or just getting an electronics kit, students and teachers create the robot and then program it, further immersing students in the powers of STEM/STEAM.

The best part is that students learn the cause and affect methodology and problem solving that is engrained in their brains with programming, without needing to learn how to actually code.

Simple concepts like how lights turn on can be learned through Makeblock. Projects as fun and easy as making a cardboard pet wag it’s tail have kids and students engaged for hours. They also offer more complex projects that can lead to hours of fun and programming like mBot, mBot Ranger and Ulimate 2.0.  Do your kids or students want to make a drone, no problem, Makeblock offers the Airblock modular and programmable drone.

Every kit comes with guides and instructions that kids can find online. In school’s Makeblock offers tons of curriculum resources that help teachers coach students into creating amazing robots and other projects as well as learn the science, technology, engineering and math skills behind them.

Codey Rocky is the latest product from Makeblock. It’s a two part codeable programmable robot and device that helps kids bring their imaginations to life. The projects kids can code with Codey Rocky are endless and stretch from moisture and water detectors for plants, to robots that can be programmed to not run into things. Kids can even program game controllers with Codey Rocky.
