Kniwwelino® is a technology-rich creative environment to learn coding and electronics


Designed especially for kids, it is composed of an electronic board and a visual online coding interface, which consists in aggregating blocs, just like a puzzle. Extensions, plugged to the electronic board, enable to discover electronics.

Beyond, the discovering of coding and electronics, Kniwwelino® can also generate a creative environment for other learnings (mathematics, sciences, art…).

The Kniwwelino environment is composed of:

  • An electronic board with 2 buttons, a RGB LED, a 5 x 5 matrix of red LEDs, a WIFI chip that allows the exchange of messages via MQTT, ports to add extensions such as sensors or servo motors,
  • A visual online coding programming interface.

By the way, the name Kniwwelino is a composition of the luxembourgish word "kniwwelen", that means to craft something, "ino"should show the deep affinity to the Arduino ecosystem and finally "Lino"as a name has a relation to lion, which is the heraldic animal of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.
