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


Learn the basics of programming: Kniwwelino® contains a circuit board based on the Arduino® and Wi-Fi™ technologies and a visual programming interface.

A fun environment: The online visual programming interface, in which blocks are assembled like a puzzle, has been designed especially for children. Extensions can be connected to the board to enable them to learn about electronics.

Learning by doing: An extensive catalogue of tested and approved fun activities makes progressive and independent learning easier. Kniwwelino® lets children think up and create their own projects.

Creative kits: Ready-to-use kits are available to introduce them to and let them create their first projects.


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.
