Robotics for kids: KinderLab Robotics’ CEO featured in Harvard Magazine

Posted By KinderLab Robotics On May 4, 2015 in Blog

A recent edition of Harvard Magazine featured an excellent, in-depth article on computing in the classroom. Our CEO and co-founder Mitch Rosenberg was inspired to respond to their editorial team.

mitchMitch, just like the rest of the team here at KinderLab Robotics, agrees with the author, Sophia Nguyen, that the classroom ‘should be no less mechanized than the kitchen’. This is the domain of robotics: an outlet for young children to engage in open-ended play, build social skills, connect with arts and culture – and learn programming concepts, simultaneously.

The culture of the classroom is changing rapidly. We believe it’s undoubtedly for the better. For more of Mitch’s insights on the topic, take a look at his letter to the editor – just published here.
