The Goddard School Franchises – Meet KIBO – The STEM/STEAM Robot!

KIBO is a robot kit that allows children to build, program, decorate, and bring their own robot to life without requiring any screen time, tablet or computer. KIBO is perfect for Pre-K, Preschool, or even Get Set classrooms; KIBO also works great with older kids in summer and afterschool programs.

More than just a STEM program, KIBO is as an open platform where students can envision and create their own robot. With art and engineering, students transform KIBO into imagined animals, vehicles, storybook characters, and more. Students plan a coding sequence using the programmable wooden building blocks, scan their sequence with KIBO, press its button and watch their creation go! Incorporate KIBO in any lesson, or set up a self-directed activity center. Imagine the possibilities!
