The ecosystem of ENGINO® is supported by key software technologies, specifically developed to aid the teaching of STEM. Students of today need a plethora of stimuli to better understand their world around them and develop the skills needed for our technologically driven world.
By combining the physical ENGINO® system with these software applications, students develop Digital literacy, also known as virtual learning. They develop technological skills, learn authorship rules, understand how to access online information, develop computational thinking and learn social responsibility while interacting with their peers.
A key element of any robotics system is the programming software. ENGINO® has developed a user friendly Scratch-like software that allows multiple methods of programming depending on the user needs and capabilities. The robot can also be programmed manually using onboard buttons. This Scratch – like software is used for editing the program and adding complex functions both in flow diagram and in Arduino IDE environment. In addition, KEIRO™ programming platform can be also controlled from smart devices through Bluetooth connection. Compatible with operating systems Windows, MacOS, Linux. Applications are available in Google Play and Apple store.

Students can easily build their own models and familiarize themselves with the virtual three-dimensional space. This 3D builder software contains a full library of all the ENGINO® parts. Users can select virtual connecting points to construct a model. An ideal tool to teach basics of CAD software such as design, zoom, rotate, explode and implode.
Engino kidCAD (3D Viewer)
ENGINO is perhaps the only construction system that originated directly from Education. Originally inspired by teachers for the Design and Technology classroom, it evolved to an award winning product which covers from Structures to Mechanisms, Renewable energy and even Robotics Control. The patented geometry of the ENGINO components allows connectivity to all directions of the 3D space with a simple snap-fit method, making it very easy even for children at the age of Primary Schools to build complex models. The 3D model viewer application has been created to allow easy access to new models developed by the ENGINO team and gradually the users themselves. All ENGINO sets have printed step by step instructions for the main models but many additional models can be created. With the new generation of technology where smart phones and tablets have become a part of every-day life, it is essential to enable the users to see new model ideas on these devices. The model viewer has an extensive library of models, continually updated, from cars to motorbikes, planes, helicopters, trucks, cranes and many more! The user can select which model to view and once this is loaded to the application, then the user can rotate the model to see it from various angles, he can zoom in to observe connecting details and most importantly he can explode the model and see how each part connects to the other one.
Ginobot Robot RC
This application is a remote control for the Ginobot Robot. By connecting to the device’s Bluetooth Access Point you can control the robot using this app.
The EnginoRobot BT™ application, available on Google Play or Apple Store, allows students to control the model, record and play a program just as they could do by pushing the physical buttons on the controller. All these can be achieved remotely and digitally! The application is featuring two additional controlling methods, the Joystick and the Tilter.
Engino Virtual Robotics, EnViRo™, is an innovative tool that enables robots to run into a simulated 3D world! Choose a model from the library and use it on any of the challenging environments. Test your code and optimize the behaviour of your model! The best tool to prepare an outstanding real world demonstration! The basic version is incorporated into KEIRO™ software.
