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!
Earlier this year we announced our various professional development programs, following the move into our new manufacturing and office headquarters in Waltham, MA. Since then, educators and program coordinators from near and far have come to learn how to integrate technology into the early education curriculum.
We took a great video during our latest full-day training session to give you an inside look at the trainings and what its like for teachers getting hands-on with KIBO. Check it out here:
KinderLab Robotics’ professional development program provides an in-depth understanding of how to use the KIBO robot kit in a developmentally-appropriate way with young children and how to integrate the different teaching materials into your existing curriculum.
Our next session will be a two-day training at our Waltham, MA headquarters on June 13th and 14th. For more information or to register, please go to: http://kinderlabrobotics.com/event/two-day-training/.
