GENIE Programming Editor

GENIE Programming Editor is our free software for creating and downloading programs onto a programmable GENIE, supporting both graphical flowcharts and a more powerful text-based BASIC programming language.

For those teachers or pupils without prior knowledge of programming or electronics that are looking for more assistance, we suggest our Circuit Wizard 3 software, with its in-built classroom resources and support for designing, modelling and making.
