Educators and students would require a KIBO robot, which is the screen-free robot kit where 4- to 7-year-olds create, design, decorate and bring their own robot to life! KIBO is an easy and fun way to bring robotics and coding to your young learners and spark their interest in STEAM. KIBO starts the youngest children on a pathway of creative coding and robotics. They playfully discover STEAM concepts by coding with wooden building blocks, creating sequences, and learning design processes — all without requiring screen time. KIBO can be easily integrated into existing curriculum or classroom projects, such as literacy, social studies, science, math and art curricula. Over 160 hours of standards-aligned STEM curriculum and teaching materials are available, as well as training to ensure success when introducing KIBO in your classrooms.
