KIBO Robotics Summer PD Workshop (Tufts)

August 09, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm


** This listing is for a KIBO training offered by our friends at the Tufts DevTech Research Group **

This one-day training workshop by the Tufts University DevTech Research Group provides hands-on training and an in-depth understanding of how to use KIBO robotics in a developmentally appropriate way with young children. Participants will learn teaching pedagogy and explore strategies for integrating the KIBO teaching materials with traditional early childhood content. This workshop is perfect for educators, program coordinators, and specialists who work with young children ages 4 to 7. No prior tech experience required! All participants will leave with a fully developed robotics curriculum, ready to implement in the fall!

Registration is $75 for the one-day KIBO workshop. Please also feel free to join us for a ScratchJr programming app workshop Monday August 8th, 2016 for a total discounted price of $130!
