Block-based programming

Based on Scratch, easy but powerful

Scratch is a programming tool developed by MIT and is credited as the most globally influential programming language for children. Based on Scratch 3.0, mBlock 5 is as versatille and as user-friendly as Scratch 3.0. In addition to this, mBlock 5 offers more possibilities with features like Python coding, AI and IoT.

One click switch to Python

Learn programming languages in the age of AI

With mBlock 5, users can easily switch to Python[1]coding with only one-click. After users grasp how to program with blocks, they can effortlessly move on to Python. No need to switch between software because mBlock 5 allows writing code directly in its Python editor. The transition is seamless.

[1] Python is a programming language widely used at the forefront of technological advances such as AI and data analysis.

Combine software with hardware

Make programming exciting and fun

mBlock 5 allows users to program robots to do anything they can imagine. By showing the outcomes of coding in the physical world, we attempt to keep children engaged in learning code and bring them senses of fulfillment. Also, mBlock 5 brings diversity into classrooms by empowering educators and students to turn more ideas into reality.

Compatible with popular robots, turn your ideas into reality

Introduce AI into programming education

Give your creativity an edge with mBlock 5’s cutting-edge technologies

mBlock 5 integrates Microsoft cognitive services and Google deep learning into one tool. These features, can help children to to get even more from mBlock 5, like age guessing or playing rock-paper-scissors games. In this way, we hope to make it easier for children to master the fundamentals of AI.

Powerful IoT applications

Help children create freely, but based on reality

mBlock 5 comes with cloud services that are specially designed for IoT teaching. By working with robots or electronic modules, you can create many fun projects using the feature, like Weather Report, Autonomous Plant Watering Robot and Smart Lighting. For children, the best way to learn about IoT is to see how it works in real life.

We also developed the mBlock 5 App to help children start coding by playing games.

mBlock 5 (Mobile)

Master coding by playing games

The mBlock 5 App is a tool designed to help children learn programming by playing games. The app integrates concepts of programming into different game levels so everyone, even first-time learners, can easily master how to code robots to perform tasks. Besides, the game levels have progressively increasing difficulties, helping children develop an interest in programming and unlock programming skills step by step.
