Yenka uses a unified interface to model reactions in scientific and technological subject areas, often in 3D. Users see results in real time or simulated time at 0.1x or 10x speed, replicating actual results (a completed circuit will illuminate a light-emitting diode (LED), but applying too much electric current will destroy it). Yenka also allows educators to design lessons and interactive content for students. The extension is .yka.
Yenka is divided into four main groupings: science, computing, mathematics and technology. The products include
Simulates program flow and logic using 3D characters and interaction.
Introduces computer programming by controlling 3D dancing characters.
Yenka 3D Shapes
Yenka light and sound
Yenka inorganic chemistry
Allows the design of circuit schematics and their effects using thousands of components.
Converts circuit design into 3D printed circuit boards (PCB)s, allowing for export to manufacturers.
Yenka electricity and magnetism
Simulates electricity generation and transmission, and analogue electrical circuits in real-time.
A modeling tool for teaching about 2D and 3D coordinates.
Some Yenka products may be sampled for 15 days for use in schools (for full use of the software, a license must be purchased), however home users can download the entire range of software free of charge, however with some limitations like not using the software during school hours.
