STEM Robotics for Elementary & PreK

KIBO - Brought to you by 20+ Years of Research

KIBO is the research-backed, playful STEM robotics for Elementary & PreK learners. Even your youngest students will create, design, decorate and bring their own robot to life through creative hands-on robotics and coding. And KIBO can easily be integrated with your existing curriculum to bring your lessons to life in a creative way that sparks students’ interest.

Developed in collaboration with author and leading researcher, Dr. Marina Bers, KIBO is based on 20+ years of research in early childhood development where Marina runs the DevTech Research Group.

Used in 70+ countries and tested and approved by thousands of children and their caregivers, KIBO has proven efficacy in helping kids learn STEAM, and getting them excited about it!

What KIBO Offers Educators

KIBO introduces young children to creative coding and robotics, through exploring concepts by coding with wooden building blocks, creating sequences, and learning the engineering design process. KIBO engages kids with playful coding and STEAM learning, all without screen time. KIBO offers students and educators:

"The students in my class couldn’t wait to get their hands on the coding blocks that would make their KIBO robots go. The lessons had a true spirit of experimentation – there were no mistakes, just lots of trials, observations, and cheers! I wouldn’t be surprised if the future programmers and scientists among them remember this experience as one that sparked their interest in coding and creative problem solving."
