Hour of Code: AI – A KIBO Mars Rover

Young learners can explore AI with the hands-on KIBO robot!

In this Hour of Code lesson, students will create a rover robot that uses its sensors and programming to explore a new environment and operate independently. KIBO will illustrate the “sense –
think – act” cycle that is fundamental to both robotics and AI.

Let’s learn about AI while creating a KIBO Rover

Create a program for KIBO that uses sensor data to act independently and come to understand that robots and AI’s ability to operate independently is limited by their sensors and programming.
