Makeblock's robotic kits for all ages

Techstination feature for Wednesday, May 24, 2017

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.    A company called Makeblock is coming up with some fascinating robotic kits for kids…and even an mBlock app for simulations and learning code.     The company’s Lu Wang says STEM…or science, technology, engineering and math…is a growing focus in schools and for kids at home too.   One of the latest kits…Airblock…can fly…

“So one of our latest projects is a drone.   But it comes with three different modes…land, air, but also the water mode as well.  So you can change the shape of the drone because it is modular and programmable and it’s magnetic.” 

The price… about 180 dollars.   There’s more info and a whole lot more to choose from online at Makeblock.com.  Some kits can get very sophisticated and pricey.
