Hello and welcome to a new issue of Child’s Play. It’s been a very busy Fall at KinderLab, and we’re excited to share it with you.
We were thrilled to be featured in the Science and Technology section of August’s issue of The Economist magazine, in an article entitled “No assembler required.” The article showcased KIBO’s ability to help introduce computer science concepts to a younger audience, and it also introduced KIBO to a large new audience of Economist readers. NPR also covered KIBO, in an article exploring the value of early sequencing education called “Coding Class, then Naptime.” We’ve had to work hard to keep up with the growing demand for KIBO over the last few months!
Today is Halloween, and we’re thinking about costumes! Read on in this issue of Child’s Play for some thoughts on the teaching-and-learning value of dressing up KIBO, some exciting events (including a long-awaited training in NYC), and more.
