Marketscale: Robotics in Early Learning Can Be Essential in How Students React to STEM Literacy
In this MarketScale Video, Jason Innes, KinderLab’s Director of Curriculum, Training, and Product Management, discusses the importance of the screen-free KIBO robot for young learners in PreK-5th grade. Early learning robotics is essential in how students learn STEM literacy, computational thinking and social emotional learning.
The video transcript reads in part:
“Picture a group of young children learning about science. They’re investigating the world. They’re sharing discoveries. They’re solving problems with each other. They’re playing. This social collaborative, playful learning is the right model for STEM education in early childhood. At Kinder Lab Robotics, we promote creative STEM literacy for all students.
Our founder, Marina Umaschi Bers is a pioneer who has led 20 years of NSF-supported academic research into how young children learn STEM. Her research proves that to reach all students with STEM, you have to start young, and you also have to give young children developmentally appropriate tools and playful social learning experiences.
That’s why we make the KIBO Robot Kit. KIBO is a hands-on and screen-free robot. Kids as young as preschool can build, program, decorate, and tell stories by learning about engineering and coding with KIBO is that playful, collaborative social experience you pictured earlier.”
