Halloween is coming, and KIBO loves to dress up! With a costume, KIBO can become a character in any story. Share your KIBO Costumes with hashtag #KIBOCostume.
Decorating KIBO engages kids with both engineering and arts. Designing a costume lets kids express their imagination, while actually constructing and attaching the costume directly to KIBO or to KIBO’s Art Platform is a fun engineering challenge. Dressing up KIBO is a key part of using KIBO within a comprehensive STEAM curriculum.
We would love to see what KIBO Costumes you or your kids have come up with. If you’re a teacher, do you have any favorite KIBO Costumes from your classroom? If you’re a parent, try creating a KIBO Costume with your kid based on a favorite book character, favorite rescue vehicle, favorite animal…
To join the fun: Share a picture of your dressed-up KIBO on Twitter with hashtag #KIBOCostume! You’ll be giving other KIBO lovers some great new ideas. We’ll re-tweet our favorites to spread the ideas. (Please only post if you’re OK with us re-tweeting and re-using your photo.)

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).
Interested? We hope so! Register here for either May 30th or 31st or get in touch with any questions.
