WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CA, USA, March 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Microduino announced the release of its mDesigner Scratch 3 Editor for Windows, Chromebook and MAC PC platforms. mDesigner includes additional support for Microduino’s mCookie/Microduino technology modules, sensors and trinkets. Microduino’s use of Scratch 3, from MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) Scratch Editor, gives Microduino mDesigner the most current Scratch editor available. By dragging and dropping blocks of code, users can make many different project.The opportunities for being creative and using one’s imagination are endless! mDesigner 3 supports Arduino and Python.
The new Chromebook mDesigner is a web-based version without the need for any special permissions or changes to ChromeOS. Chromebook support by mDesigner is an especially important message to schools who want to teach coding while controlling their budgets by using Chromebooks to grow their STEM/STEAM programs. Chromebooks are in use in thousands of classrooms and having mDesigner is a huge benefit for the students and teachers.
“We are pleased to maintain mDesigner as the most current programming tool for Microduino’s Arduino based products. “And, for our hobbyists, inventors, tinkerers and educational users, Scratch coding is now becoming the overwhelming standard.” commented Bin Feng, CEO.
Microduino has been a leading innovator in DIY, CPT (Code Programmable Toys) and STEM Arduino based products. Using the Arduino CPU in unique form factors has greatly expanded to the development and use of low cost, programmable hardware products and platforms.
