Arts, crafts, and robotics unite for STEAM education in makerspaces and classrooms. Join Jason Innes as he introduces KIBO, a research-based, screen-free robot that kids can easily program using wooden blocks. He will show how PreK through 2nd grade students can build, program, and decorate their own robots, collaboratively and without screen-time. KIBO is a maker's palette. Jason will explain how kids can transform KIBO into anything they imagine using construction paper, pipe cleaners, cardboard, googly eyes, LEGOô bricks and more, and then bring their creation to life with code. Discover how KIBO might become an animal in its habitat for science, a storybook character in a robotic reader's theater for literacy, a dancer from another culture for music, or a school bus traveling the neighborhood for social studies.

I thought this was informative and the product would be very beneficial for many. However somewhat expensive and was wondering how durable the models are.

Exciting and transferable to the robots that we currently own.

Interesting. Thanks!
I liked the idea of a screen free connection with children. I think children are in front of video games way to early. They need to be able to play and use their imagination. I like that KIBO doesn't resemble anything.
