Our vision

Let creation be a way of life.

 

Our scratch Arduino education mission

 

To help people turn their ideas into reality, and to take education to the next level.

From the beginning with the DIY platform, to the newly released product Codey Rocky, after 6 years, over 2,000 days and nights, Makeblock still has been on mission to “To help people turn their ideas into reality, and to take education to the next level”. By developing hardware and software products, providing high-quality contents and operating robotic competitions, Makeblock greatly lower the threshold of creation by providing tools and methods of creation, so that everyone can realize their ideas and enjoy the experience of creating.

What is STEAM education?

Mission

STEAM education is an interdisciplinary teaching concept that integrates the Arts with the traditional STEM subjects: Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. It emphasizes practice-based learning instead of, as traditional education does, theoretical knowledge. It encourages students to participate in projects that are related to their daily lives, or part of their own interests. By finding ways to solve problems on their own, students gain comprehensive skills over a range of subjects, like critical thinking and problem solving, creativity and innovation, communication, collaboration, and entrepreneurship, and more.
