GinoBot™ comes in various editions to allow different possibilities depending on school’s budget, age of students and complexity required.
The basic edition is the lowest cost version that will still surprise teachers with the innovative features included and can always be upgraded later as students develop more coding skills. The body of GinoBot™ has numerous built-in ENGINO® connecting geometries so that students can expand their robot with structural and mechanical parts, making more advanced models. Teachers can follow STEM interdisciplinary activities and apply inquiry-based learning methodologies to engage and inspire their students. The vehicle’s powerful processor connects with USB, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi and can be programmed with KEIRO, but also Python and C++ once a Micro:bit or Arduino are installed. The 4-wheeled robot can have its tires converted to a cat-truck and is surrounded by three proximity sensors. It has two floor color sensors and two encoder motors for precise motion.
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.
