Thymio is the new generation educational robot that has established itself over the years in many schools around the world. What is its objective? Allow children to familiarize themselves with engineering, programming, computer thinking or robotics. The Thymio robot team has surrounded itself with professors, engineers, designers and research institutes to perfect its robotics education program, which has been adopted by more and more schools in France and abroad.
Thymio supports schools by offering many resources that help them integrate the educational robot into programs of all ages:
Thymio is a complete open source robotics development platform, easy to use, ideal for small budgets! Embedding numerous sensors and a complete software suite (graphic and textual programming), the Thymio educational robot is an ideal all-in-one solution to start developing robots!
Thymio offers all computer programming novices the opportunity to familiarize themselves with all the possibilities of their robot. To do this, he created the Aseba toolbox: a free downloadable free software, powered by the Thymio community and updated by Dr. Stéphane Magnenat. This toolkit is specially adapted for education, research and offers an easy and accessible visual coding (VPL) in the form of drag and drop images.
The Thymio educational community is extremely important and made up of many contributors. They regularly share their achievements, how they have been implemented and how you too can implement them with your students. A way to keep renewing yourself and never run out of ideas from one year to the next.
