As you may have heard, we were excited to welcome Congresswoman Katherine Clark to the KinderLab Robotics headquarters last month. As an avid supporter of early education, Congresswoman Clark was keen to see KIBO in action and learn more about our mission – and vice versa.
CEO and co-founder Mitch Rosenberg talked with her and her team for some time about everything including coding, STEAM, and girls in tech.
“It important that girls begin at an early age and have toys and materials in the classroom purposely put together with gender equality in mind – both in approach and the way you get results – to keep them from feeling as though they aren’t as good as the boys,” said Congresswoman Clark.
After all that talking, we got to coding! Check out the video below of Congresswoman Clark creating a program with our robot kit, KIBO.
Katherine Clark has been the Congresswoman for the Fifth District of Massachusetts since 2013.
Stay tuned for more from our visit, including a Q&A!
KIBO, our developmentally appropriate robot kit, is based on more than 15 years of child development and learning technologies research. So as you can imagine, the team here at KinderLab Robotics is sitting on a wealth of ed tech, child development and early education knowledge.
We’ve so enjoyed sharing our expertise on the blog, over social media, at events, and at our professional development trainings, but we want to do more! CEO and co-founder Mitch Rosenberg will be hosting a FREE interactive webinar for any educators and program coordinators committed to K-2 education.
Introducing STEM to the classroom isn’t easy – we know that. In this webinar, we’ll equip you with the confidence and the tools to get it right. Through real-life examples, hands-on experience and credited research, this webinar will show you where to start, how to get funding, what NOT to do and so much more.
Not to mention, all registrants will receive a copy of our KIBO curriculum, used by educators across the USA, absolutely free of charge (value $35).
