Playful STEAM robotics for kids

Screen-Less. Fun More.

Get ready to build, code, create, and explore using KIBO - hands-on STEAM robotics for kids. KIBO provides hours of exciting, imaginative, playful, and social learning experiences.

KIBO connects the arts with computer science through robotics designed for young learners – without the need for screen time. With KIBO, educators bring lesson plans to life, while kids use their own creativity and self-expression to bring KIBO to life. They investigate their world, share discoveries, develop their computational thinking and STEAM skills, solve problems, and much more.
