Build. Art. Code. Play: Integrating Robotics within K-2 Curriculum

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 really like the fact that the students can decide the functions the robots will perform, design, build them, and develop teamwork in the process.
