Makeblock is excited to present the newest member of the Makeblock Neuron family: The Explorer Kit. Exclusively sold at Apple Stores around the world, the kit offers a range of new features for beginner code learners including new blocks and additional use cases, plus interactive lessons and support for Swift Playgrounds on iPad. We believe it is the ideal way to get started with programming.

The Explorer Kit comes with a total of 12 coding blocks including Temperature Sensor, Ranging Sensor, Light Sensor, LED Strip Driver and LED Strip, Dual DC Motor Driver and DC Motor blocks. To help get you started with your new kit, we have included four cardboard templates to build inventions including a piano, ukulele, a car, and an LED sword.

Swift is a powerful and intuitive programming language created by Apple for creating software for macOS, iOS, and more. With Swift Playgrounds, a revolutionary iPad app that helps users learn and explore coding in Swift, children and students can easily explore the language used to create world-class apps for the App Store. Engaging lessons and challenges help students learn the core concepts of coding by writing real Swift and iOS code in an interactive environment designed for touch.

When Makeblock Neuron is connected to your iPad over Bluetooth, the Swift Playgrounds app provides an engaging user experience that mirrors on screen what your invention does in the real world. Build the Explorer Car and see the motors spin within the app alongside your vehicle once you run your program.

The Makeblock Neuron Explorer Kit is gives children a way to get to know programming and related STEM subjects by building toys and games. By doing so it greatly lowers the threshold for creation, making inventing gadgets something everyone can do.

The Makeblock Neuron Explorer Kit is available exclusively from Apple Stores worldwide and at Apple Online Store.
