KinderLab gets down to business – with robots
Being based in Boston, one of the world’s largest tech hubs, certainly has its perks. Last week, the KinderLab Robotics team grabbed KIBO and ventured out to the RoboBusiness conference, being held at the Hynes Convention Center.
RoboBusiness is an international executive-level robotics event that connects cutting-edge solutions providers with investors, end users and new business partners to accelerate the growth of the industry. The organization is celebrating its tenth year.
Our chief scientist, Marina Umaschi Bers, spoke on a panel moderated by Dan Kara, the practice director for Robotics ABI Research alongside Ramya Swamy, co-founder of PegaSense and Cédric Vaudel, marketing director for Aldebaran. The session, titled ‘The Business of Educational Robotics’, discussed the future of robotics in education. If you’ve been following the journey of KIBO, you’re likely aware of the positive effects robotics, programming and technical education can have on children of all ages – as well as the benefits of starting young, while children at free of sterotypes and excited to learn.
