Hello, and welcome to the May 2016 issue of Child’s Play!
Summer is just around the corner, and another school year comes to an end. We are so happy that KIBO has been a part of that year for so many students, all around the world. We have loved seeing the classroom pictures and videos shared on Twitter (hashtag #KIBORobot!) and the experiences and stories shared with us on our new KIBO Resources website.
In this issue of Child’s Play, we have an excerpt from one of those classroom stories; a KIBO collaboration between third graders and Kindergarteners at Friends Seminary in New York City. We also have an article about President Obama’s exciting new Early STEM Learning initiative, in which we are very proud to participate!
One of the things that makes KIBO special is the ability to build onto, decorate, and dress up your robot. KIBO’s openness helps bring art and engineering into robotics, provides diverse curriculum options, and allows kids to express themselves while learning computational thinking. We are excited to say that we are about to launch a new add-on module for KIBO which we’re calling the Expression Module. This is a new attachment which will allow KIBO to carry signs, flags, and other decorations. We’re excited about the possibilities this new module will open up; complete details will be coming soon!Download Child's Play Newsletter - May 2016 (.pdf)
