KIBO rolls around SXSWedu: Programming through play in Texas

Posted By KinderLab Robotics On March 16, 2015 in Blog

SXSW has become a world-famous celebration of technical innovation and in 2011 the organization added a new segment – education. Innovation in education is so critical and we’ve avidly followed the SXSWedu conference since its inception four years ago. But this year is the most special of all to the team at KinderLab Robotics – its KIBO’s first time in Texas!

Our robot kit accompanied our friend Sue Cusack, the co-leader of the Kennedy-Longfellow / Lesley University partnership, to the conference. KIBO was available to children, parents and teachers in their designated maker-space and was a big hit. Attendees could customize and program a robot, then watch it come to life. It’s an honor to be featured alongside so many other fantastic ed tech products, and we hope everybody who had a chance to play and learn with KIBO walked away smiling.
