Our Vision

Demystifying the wonders of robotics and AI by

We develop  innovative workshops and educational resources, and we provide them to students around the globe in collaboration with teachers and volunteers. Our  train-the-trainer sessions enable them to bring our hands-on workshops to the students. Our core values are:

  • Innovation: we continue to develop new, original, hands-on STEM activities grounded in both engineering & educational research
  • Gender gap: we succeed in reaching as many girls and boys through our focus on gender-neutral activities
  • For everyone: we actively reach out to socially-economically disadvantaged children and students
  • International collaboration: establishing a new global sustainable community of teachers and volunteers
  • Impact: our cost-efficient approach enables us to scale up all our projects

Our Expertise

The strength of Dwengo lies in our international collaboration. Every year we launch new projects in different countries in the field of physical computing and robotics. In all these projects we bring in our expertise and didactical approach, but we also learn a lot from our local volunteers and teachers. This two-way collaboration has helped us to reach a unique position in the computer science landscape. We won the Google RISE award for our approach (twice).

  • Knowledge sharing and collaboration
  • International focus with projects on 4 continents
  • Young and old: children from the age of 8 to university students
  • Girls as well as boys: Dwengo reduces the gender gap
  • All our software and documentation is open source

Serial communication: Dwengo & GNU Octave

This tutorial shows several small tricks: How to easily compile from the command line using the project Makefile described in my post about command line compilation (extension of Wim’s post). How to send integers (2-bytes long) over the serial port (1-byte messages). How to plot "real-time" the data in the serial port using GNU Octave.

Graphical programming with ArduBlock

The Dwenguino is programmed in a textual programming language C++ within the Arduino IDE environment. However, for those who are reluctant to start textual programming, a user-friendly textual programming language is made available. It allows the user to acquire the different components of programming languages. One such language is ArduBlock. In this tutorial we get

Dwenguino Labview Interface

Labview is a graphical development environment used by scientist and engineers for creating applications that interact with real-world data. With Labview you can easily design user interfaces controlled by a graphical programming language. Labview runs on Windows, Mac OSX and Linux. This tutorial describes how you can use the dwenguino as a data acquisition board
