mBot 2.0: Sensing & Data Collection (Gr. 3-8)


In this lesson, students will learn that robots can be used in research. A robot has several sensors (senses) with which it can perceive its surroundings and also collect data. Students will learn how the mBot 2 measures sound and temperature and how to read the data on the screen of the mBot2 and use it for research into sound density or the temperature of the classroom.


  • Students will learn what sensors the mBot2 has
  • Students will learn how the sensors of the mBot2 work
  • Students will learn what the difference is between live mode and upload mode
  • Students will learn how to show the data from the sensors on the display of the CyberPi
