With our coding box, your child can quickly get started with programming learning, all while enjoying the process. Say goodbye to the tears and tantrums, and hello to a world where learning to code is an adventure your child will love!

mBot Ranger with Four Engaging Coding Projects: A Programming Adventure

As a parent, you want to give your child the best opportunities to learn and grow. mBot Ranger with Coding Box is here to help you do just that! This project-based coding box is designed to unlock the full potential of mBot Ranger, transforming it into a powerful educational tool. With features like responding to sound volume, light detection, obstacle avoidance, and line following, this box makes learning programming fun and accessible for kids, boosting their confidence for self-coding exploration.


The Louder, The Faster: Voice-Controlled Movement with mBot Ranger with Coding Project Box

Imagine a robot that moves faster as you raise your voice. That's exactly what your child will experience with the "The Louder, the Faster" project using mBot Ranger. This exciting activity lets children control their robot's movement with their voices—the louder they speak, the faster it goes. It's a fun and engaging way to learn about robotics and programming.

What Your Child Will Learn:
This Coding Project Box enables kids to learn how sound sensors detect the intensity of their voice in real time and use that to control the robot's speed, offering a hands-on way to understand sensor technology. They'll program the mBot Ranger to move forward, with its speed varying based on how loud they speak, making the learning experience interactive and fun. Through this activity, children will grasp how programs can perform actions repeatedly by writing code that continuously checks and adjusts the robot's speed, introducing them to loops in programming. Additionally, the project teaches the concept of conditional statements, showing how the program makes decisions based on voice loudness, laying the groundwork for more advanced programming logic.

Not Afraid of Darkness: Exploring Light Sensing with mBot Ranger with Coding Project Box

Have you ever wondered how robots can sense and react to changes in light? With the "Not Afraid of Darkness" project using mBot Ranger, your child will delve into the fascinating world of light sensing and programming while having a blast with their robot companion.

What Your Child Will Explore:
This project teaches children about light sensing technology, where the mBot Ranger detects light intensity changes, helping kids understand how sensors allow robots to interact with their environment. They'll also learn about the buzzer alarm principle, seeing how the robot lights up red and emits an alarm in darkness, and understanding how the buzzer produces sound. Additionally, the project introduces RGB color principles, showing how the robot changes colors with different combinations of red, green, and blue light, expanding their knowledge of technology and basic science.

Avoiding Obstacles: Navigating with Ease with mBot Ranger with Coding Project Box

Imagine a robot that can smoothly navigate around obstacles in its path without any help. With the "Avoiding Obstacles" project using mBot Ranger, your child will improve their programming skills in a fun and interactive way.

What Your Child Will Discover:
In this project, children will discover how the ultrasonic sensor on the mBot Ranger detects obstacles and navigates around them. They'll explore the technology behind obstacle avoidance, learning how the robot senses its surroundings and makes decisions. Additionally, kids will learn to control the robot's movements, mastering the basics of navigation by programming the mBot Ranger to move forward and turn right when encountering obstacles, helping them navigate complex environments confidently.

Not Getting Lost: Mastering Line Following with mBot Ranger with Coding Project Box

Picture a robot confidently tracing its path along a black line, never losing its way. With the "Not Getting Lost" project using mBot Ranger, your child will witness the impressive line-following capabilities of their robot and delve into the exciting world of autonomous navigation.

What Your Child Will Uncover:
In this project, children will learn about the line-following sensor on mBot Ranger. They'll discover how this sensor enables the robot to detect and follow black lines with precision, showcasing its advanced autonomous navigation. As they witness their mBot Ranger effortlessly following the black line, they'll be inspired to explore new challenges and push the boundaries of what's possible with technology.
