Hello, and welcome to the March 2016 issue of Child’s Play!
This month we are sharing stories of KIBO Around the World! KIBO is in use in over 40 countries right now, and educators in many different countries are finding inspiring ways to incorporate KIBO into their programs. From a nationwide Kindergarten program in Singapore to a summer camp in Argentina, we have stories in this newsletter of KIBO across cultures.
We have some other news to share as well! In January, the Social Innovation Forum selected KinderLab for their 2016 Social Business Accelerator, a 12-week program designed to help “social-purpose” businesses develop and thrive. Through the program, we’ve already met some wonderful, insightful mentors and investors who value the mission behind KIBO and KinderLab as much as we do.
And last month we launched the KIBO Resources website, with the ongoing support of the National Science Foundation. This website gathers many free KIBO resources: activities, curriculum, videos, and more. And we invite you to share your experiences, tips, and ideas with other KIBO users. More info about the Resources site is later in this newsletter.
