Makeblock Airblock: The Modular and Programmable Starter Drone

Makeblock are back on Kickstarter and this time they've got an awesome modular programmable drone, the Airblock. (Makeblock make the mBot and mBot Ranger which are two of our favourite programmable robots for kids.)

The Airblock drown has an innovative magnetic module design so that in can be rapidly built into a range of configurations. As well as the drone you can build land-based vehicles and even a hover craft!

Airblock is programmable and can be coded from a graphical drag and drop app interface. The coding is suitable for children as young as 8, though they'll need supervising when flying the drone. 

Airblock looks like lots of fun and helps develop valuable STEM skills too.
