Hour of Code: Expressing Happiness with KIBO

“If you’re happy and you know it flash your light!” In this robotics lesson that also engages with music and social-emotional learning, students collaboratively create a program for KIBO including both input and output that expresses a feeling of happiness. Students learn that robots have output parts that allow them to send information out into the world.

Let’s dance with our KIBOs!

Design a program with KIBO’s output parts — like the light bulb — to show how happy you are!
