Grants for STEM Education

There are thousands of grants for STEM education for teachers, administrators, curriculum coordinators, as well as clubs and camps to apply for. And it all starts with KIBO.

Give children the chance to make their ideas tangible.

You’re probably thinking that KIBO only qualifies for robotics or technology grants, but you’d be shortchanging yourself (and your students). KIBO fits in to almost every aspect of early learning curricula, and therefore, can expand your qualifications for specific grants for STEM education.

STEM/STEAM Grants and Funding Resources

There are many different ways to get STEM/STEAM grants for the purchase of educational technology. Learn about some of the ways you can find and secure STEM/STEAM grants and funding.

"In applying for a Maryland State Department of Education grant specifically for robotics instruction, I drew heavily on KinderLab Robotics’ research regarding the benefits of play and creativity with KIBO. The work Kinderlab Robotics has already done to map their KIBO curriculum to CSTA Standards provided a framework for aligning my proposal with MSDE standards."

All this and it's Screen-Free(!) too

KIBO’s offline, screen-free advantage is more than just a benefit to students growing up in an online society. The hands-on manipulatives, and “unplugged” logic benefits critical thinking, motor skills, and cognitive reasoning that most coding programs for early learners do not afford. As a staple in innovation labs, makerspaces, libraries, as well as the general classroom, it integrates easily into lesson plans for early educators, and the countless opportunities to incorporate KIBO into an activity lends itself to endless engagement by young students.

Don't Take KIBO for Grant(ed)

Don’t underestimate the value that KIBO brings. Many programs appreciate the innovation and adaptability that brings forth opportunities to extend monetary contributions. In other words, investing grant money in KIBO goes a long way, and for years of learning not just for your but for professional development for your educators as well.
