About KIBO – The Playful STEAM Robot

KIBO is a robot kit where elementary ages learners build, program, decorate, and bring their own robot to life without requiring any screen time on a smartphone, tablet, or computer. With art and engineering, students transform KIBO into imagined animals, vehicles, storybook characters, and more. When children build, code, and decorate their own robot, they perceive it as play, but they are learning invaluable STEAM skills. Not only are these hands-on experiences inherently rewarding, but they help children understand the technology in their world and can even improve their future job prospects.
