About the Makeblock Neouron Inventors kit

Makeblock Neuron is a programmable electronic building block platform for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) education. The Makeblock Neuron Invetor’s kit contains  different kinds of snap-on blocks with various different functions helping little creators build a variety of innovative gadgets. One can program these blocks using an intuitive flow-based programming language. With these programmable blocks young kids can explore the world of electronics safely simply by clipping these magnetic blocks to one another and interacting with the real world using the sensors embedded within them. Programming is as simple as drawing lines on the ipad/andriod app, connecting the different blocks to get them to perform the required actions. Makeblock Neuron enables creators of all programming levels to turn their ideas and concepts into reality.
