Build, Program and Fun
Are You a Parent?
It is important that children understands the foundation of how a robot works rather than looking at it as a mysterious black box. In fact, there are many advantages of learning robotics at an early age. It can impart life skills, such as creativity and problem solving. Understanding robotics at an early age will future proof your child to know that science and technology is nothing to be afraid of but something to be embraced, explored and made to work to their advantage.
Are You a Teacher?
Robots are becoming increasingly popular as an educational platform. Working with robots is highly stimulating for the younger students, allowing them to acquire important skills that will help them during their school years and beyond. Initiation to robotics is also proven to have helped in preventing school failure. In higher education, robots and robotics kits allow student to work with real hardware in order to be prepared for the challenges of putting together a real product.
Build and Assemble your Q.bo One
Q.bo One is deliberately designed as a kit. It is easy to assemble, program and interact with. We wanted to show that robots are not difficult to make and program. Besides there is no better way to ensure the quality of the product other than assembling it yourself. Furthermore, you will be able to gain a good knowledge on what makes your robot works. In future, you can even upgrade your own Qbo One.
Amateurs may take approximately an hour to fix it up but people who likes to tinker with things may take less than 30 minutes to fix it up. Step by step instruction guide with visual illustration will be given.
When you build your own Q.bo One, you will unlock an immense sense of achievement on completion which can be realized through some effort, patience and curiosity. It is easy to assemble and can be done once you put your heart into it.
Scratch Lets Your Kid Learn Coding
Scratch is a simple programming environment designed for kids aged 3 to 16. Instead of typing lines of text, as you do with traditional coding, you drag coloured blocks and join them together to build programs. With Scratch your childrens can manipulate variables, use operators, understand control flow, conditional statements and loops, detecting and responding to real-world input and simple multimedia programming, including drawing, animation and sound.
Who Uses Scratch?
Scratch is designed especially for ages 8 to 16, but is used by people of all ages. Millions of people are creating Scratch projects in a wide variety of settings, including homes, schools, museums, libraries, and community centers.
Scratch in Schools
Students are learning with Scratch at all levels, from elementary school to college, and across disciplines such as math, computer science, language arts, social studies.
Learn to Code
The ability to code computer programs is an important part of literacy in today’s society. When people learn to code in Scratch, they learn important strategies for solving problems, designing projects, and communicating ideas.
Scratch Around the World
Scratch is used in more than 150 different countries and available in more than 40 languages.

Learn to Code, Code to Learn
Scratch helps young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively — essential skills for life in the 21st century. As children create with Scratch, they learn to think creatively, work collaboratively, and reason systematically. Scratch is designed and maintained by the Lifelong Kindergarten group at the MIT Media Lab.
