Makeblock Neuron Creative Lab Introduction

The Makeblock Neuron is a programmable electronic modules platform that is specially designed for STEAM. It includes 30 different modules, like LED display, camera, ultrasonic sensor, motor, etc. With these modules, children are able to create their own gadgets, tools and toys. What they need to do is simply arranging the modules in the way they want. Also, the flow-based programming software frees children from complicated codes and still enables them to bring their blocks to life. In this way, the blocks can be both fun and useful.

 

Highlights:

  • Build limitless creations and gadgets with over 30 modules
  • Magnetic Pogo Pins connect in a snap
  • Learn new AI and IoT concepts

 

Makeblock Neuron Creative Lab Includes:

  • Makeblock Neuron Creative Lab Kits
  • Makeblock Neuron Creative Lab Course(Electronic Edition)
  • Neuron Creative Production and Scientific Lab Manual(Electronic Edition)
