Robot Kits Teach Programming
How to Teach Kids Programming Skills
Research shows that young children can learn programming and engineering at a very early age.
To learn programming and engineering, they need materials designed in the spirit of traditional learning manipulatives in early childhood (physical, as opposed to on-screen).
KIBO Robot kits are a developmentally-appropriate and fun way for children to learn programming.
Why KIBO is the Best Way to Teach Programming

What Kids & Teachers Say About KIBO
“Look, look what I did. I made it myself!”
“It is not a robot. It is something that you can program to do what you want. It is much better!”
“I loved it (KIBO), the design of it in particular, it was very clean, very clear, and so that focus on programming is going to definitely translate. If I put this block here, this happens.”
“I liked it (KIBO) because it is very versatile, it is like a platform for staging something, I think that's really cool.”
