STEM programs

Makeblock mBot robots and AstroTab tablets

The Pinal County Library District has ten mBot robot kits available to lend out to member libraries for public STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) programs.   The mBot comes with visual instructions and takes roughly 30 minutes to build.

 

PCLD has ten AstroTab A750 tablets equipped with both the Makeblock and mBlock apps that can be used to code and operate the mBot robots once they are built.  These may also be lent out to member libraries for the purpose of programming within the library.  Please contact pinallibrary@pinalcountyaz.gov or give us a call at the district office in order to set up a program or borrow these materials.
