Roving Robots Ages 10-13

Robot Builders and Coders, LEGO® EV3s and mBot®


Design, build, and program robots that interact with you, perform complex tasks, and respond to changes in the environment. Use LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 motors, sensors, gears, and other technical components. Team up for First LEGO League-inspired challenges.

Further your robotics skills by completing missions with MakeBlock’s mBot programmable robot. You’ll use Scratch-like code blocks to control the robot, maneuver it through mazes and master challenges such as a balloon popping game. You’ll also learn how to code text and even animate the eyes of your robot using an LED array panel.
