KinderLab Robotics offers different opportunities for professional development. These hands-on experiences target the different needs of schools and early childhood centers. From one-hour web conferences to two-day on-site workshops, KinderLab will work with you to hand-craft the best suited program for your institution.
Teaching coding, engineering, and STEM in early childhood requires age-appropriate tools: like your school’s screen-free KIBO Robot Kits. But just as important is quality professional development to give teachers confidence with the tools and curriculum. Maximize the impact of your investment in the KIBO Robot Kit with a virtual or on-site PD workshop!
The Computer Science Teachers’ Association has certified KinderLab’s KIBO Professional Development as a Quality PD Program (search for “KIBO” in the catalog).
KIBO Training Options
KinderLab Robotics offers custom professional development to fit your needs, either onsite or remotely.
On-Site Workshops: We can work with your school, organization, or district to provide an on-site training workshop to fit your specific needs. The cost of the workshop depends on the length of training, number of trainers, and number of participants; and travel costs (airfare, lodging, etc.). We can also provide a “train the trainer” workshop to empower your district’s experts to train other teachers. Please contact our training team to discuss your particular needs and we can prepare a quote.
Web-Based Training: $100. We offer a regular schedule of live, interactive web-based training workshops. These are an ideal format to provide a quick, effective introduction to teaching with KIBO. Purchase access to a KIBO web training via our web-store.
KIBO Workshops – In Person or Virtual
Virtual web-conference PD workshops are easier to schedule and conduct safely. They can also be engaging and effective, even when the subject is a hands-on, screen-free robot kit! KinderLab has conducted virtual workshops with customers of all sizes, ranging from large public school districts to individual independent schools, from regional head-start organizations to neighborhood preschools. Virtual half-day workshops for up to 15 participants start at $1,000.
