The new INVENTOR MECHANICS series has a thematic approach with multi model capabilities, featuring an impressive main model. A new library of patent-pending components has been added to the ENGINO® system which enhances both aesthetics and technical features. These parts include high-precession wheels, mechanisms and snap-fit curved surfaces. The smaller sets in the series are suitable for 7 year olds, while older children are challenged with the bigger sets which also include a geared motor. The top of range steps-up the complexity with Robotics technology, Bluetooth connectivity and software control.
Meet the GinoBot™
GinoBot™ is a highly programmable robot ready to be used straight out of the box. Developed by a high-level research team of engineers and academics, GinoBot™ is a unique tool for teaching STEM disciplines, computational thinking and digital literacy with fun and handson experiencial activities.
GinoBot™ is the robot that helps students explore divergent projects in a broad range of levels. It has literally unlimited expansion potential since it allows the attachment of add-on 3rd party electronics and hardware like a Raspberry Pi, Arduino, and micro:bit. Besides its internal sensors and its expandability with 3rd party electronics, the body of GinoBot™ is also compatible with the ENGINO® building system to construct larger and more sophisticated robots.
From Plug & Play robot...
The innovation of GinoBot™ lies within its core design. It is expandable and adaptable to a very broad range of features to match the classroom needs of different ages. Plug&play robots are commonly used in pre-school and early primary classrooms in order to teach algorithmic and computational thinking. GinoBot™ is an ideal plug&play robot since it allows manual programming and wireless control that allows teaching the fundamental steps of programming.
... To high-end coding and electronics
The upgradable potential of GinoBot™ is essentially unlimited due to its compatibility with microcontrollers such as Arduino, Raspberry Pi and micro:bit. Teaching real programming languages such as C/C++ and Python can easily be adopted in a classroom, while maintaining fun, entertainment and motivation to the students. The advantage of working in open projects materializes through this holistic solution that combines mechanics with software and electronics.
GinoBot™ comes in various editions to allow different possibilities depending on school’s budget, age of students and complexity required.
