Introducing young children to important coding and programming concepts is essential, and KIBO provides a friendly, hands-on way to familiarize students with the basics while still being about play. The idea behind the KIBO robot was to take objects that are familiar to young children – in this case wooden building blocks – and use them as the foundation for introducing programming and block-based coding
With KIBO, children build, program, decorate and bring their own robot to life! KIBO lets kids’ imaginations soar – all without requiring screen time on PCs, tablets, or smartphones.

Use KIBO as a tool to teach everything from Life Sciences to Visual Arts. In our lesson idea, students use KIBO to learn about their favorite animal and represent its habitat.

My Pet KIBO

  • During the Animal Habitat unit, research an animal of your choosing. Find out where it lives, what it looks like, what sounds it makes, and what is needed for it to thrive.
  • Then, have students decorate KIBO to look like the animal they've been researching. Use arts and crafts to recreate its prime environment for survival.
  • Now it's time to train the pet KIBO! Use the microphone to record sounds the animal makes. Next, create a program that lets your KIBO pet "speak" whenever a predator comes by (reenact this by clapping hands to make a loud noise).
  • Show off your pet KIBO in the environment you created for it while illustrating to the class the specific habitat of your animal, and any interesting facts you learned along the way!

Drive student achievement, and career readiness.

Teaching Early Ed with KIBO

With a call to add real-world content for even our youngest of learners, early childhood educators often look for new ways to incorporate meaningful technologically-minded lessons, while at the same time avoiding screen time. We know our students can become anything they want to in life, and with a device designed for open-ended play, so can their robot. With KIBO, students can build a story, program a dance routine, artistically represent their favorite character, and bring their robot to life. Join our session to discover lessons in multiple disciplines, and watch KIBO integrate itself into virtually any early ed program!
