Thank you to KinderLab Robotics for sponsoring EarlyEdCon 2017!
KinderLab Robotics is the creator of KIBO, a robot kit based on 15 years of child development research. With KIBO, 4- to 7-year-olds create, design, decorate and bring their own robot to life! Created by Prof. Marina Bers at Tufts University specifically for teachers, KIBO is used in 49 countries and has been tested and approved by thousands of children and their caregivers. KIBO has proven efficacy (http://ase.tufts.edu/DevTech/ReadyForRobotics/index.asp) in helping kids learn STEAM—and get excited about it!
KIBO engages even the youngest children in active learning. When children build, code, and decorate their own robot, they are learning invaluable skills that will lead them on the path for success in science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics (STEAM) skills and future careers. As they learn all these skills, they will think it is just play! KIBO lets kids’ imaginations soar without requiring screen time on PCs, tablets, or smartphones.
In addition to KIBO, KinderLab offers a complete suite of teaching materials that help integrate STEAM elements into a wide range of curricula, including art, cultural studies, and reading literacy.
