What is KIBO?

KIBO is the screen-free robot kit for kids that lets 4- to 7-year-olds create, design, decorate and bring their own robot to life! KIBO is an easy and fun way to bring robotics and coding to your young learners and spark their interest in STEAM.

  • When children code with KIBO they are learning invaluable skills that will lead them on the path for success in science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics (STEAM) skills and future careers. As they learn all these skills, they will think it is just play!
  • Based on 20 years of early child development research, this hands-on educational robot engages young students to learn STEAM concepts through play and creative self-expression.
  • STEAM learning with KIBO is fun, imaginative and easy. Your youngest learners will playfully discover these concepts by coding with wooden building blocks, creating sequences, and learning design processes.
  • Used in 55 countries and tested and approved by thousands of children and their caregivers, KIBO has proven efficacy in helping kids learn STEAM, and getting them excited about it!
 

Imagine and Create with KIBO

Young children learn by doing. KIBO gives your kids the chance to make their ideas physical and tangible—exactly what their young minds and bodies need. And KIBO does all this without requiring screen time from PCs, tablets or smartphones.

KIBO serves as an open platform designed for kids to imagine and create their own robot. Just turn it upside down. See the circuitry? Kids can visibly see that this is the KIBO “brain” and not magic. Just add the wheels with the motors and your KIBO is on the move!

 KIBO Robot Kit – Advance Kit with 18 Programming Blocks

KIBO is a robot kit specifically designed for young children ages 4-7 years. It is different from any other kit out there because it appeals to both technically minded kids and those that connect more to arts and culture or physical activity. Young children learn by doing. Children build their own robot with KIBO, program it to do what they want, and decorate it. KIBO gives children the chance to make their ideas physical and tangible—exactly what their young minds and bodies need. And KIBO does all this without requiring screen time from PCs, tablets or smartphones. 


Teachers – Get ready for an amazing experience with kids. 


There are different concepts used by KIBO blocks such as repeat blocks, conditional statements, and nesting statements. The concepts are pretty straight-forward and can easily be taught to children.

The kit comes with a curriculum and a guide with a complete lesson plan as well.

  • Made by teachers for teachers
  • Provides mental growth and stability to kids between 4-7 of age.
  • Introduces kids to robotics and computing.
  • Increases cognitive ability
  • An easy to use scanning system by the robot for scanning programming blocks
  • Blocks use repeat loops, conditional statements, and nesting statements as well.
  • A detailed guide to use the robot kit effectively

    STEAM Approach

    STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics, is an education approach where these are treated as the key learning areas for students.

    Various researches have proven that STEAM approach for education help kids in increasing their potential; improve their thinking abilities and cognitive capabilities.

     

    Kinder Labs introducing KIBO – STEAM based Kit

    Kinder Labs has put in years of research to develop a safe, easy to learn, interesting robot kit that uses STEAM approach. Finally, KIBO Robot Kit became a reality.

    Not only has the kid got to learn about code and mobile robotics. But also get aware of the inputs, outputs and the ways to use them efficiently for making custom projects.

     

    KIBO Kit Details 

    There’s one KIBO robot with 18 programming blocks, including 12 parameter cards, 2 wheels, 3 motors, 3 sensors (light, sound, distance sensor), 1 light-bulb output device, and art platforms namely stage support, stage pedestal, rectangular stage and round stage

    Art stage help kids to explore their creativity and gives them the pleasure to decorate the robot as they like.

     

    How KIBO works?

    In simple terms, there’s hardware which is the robot itself and software being the programming blocks logic that connect everything wirelessly.


    More about KIBO – Usage Details

    KIBO operates with a built-in scanner often known as an embedded scanner as well. The robot can scan the programming blocks, as the robot scans the bar code, the commands are sent back to robot for that block. 

    The reason there’s no tablet or screen involved is just because children from age 4 to 7 should not be exposed to screen time. As touch screens and such devices impact most to kids with these age groups.

     

    American Academy of Pediatrics Recommends the Same

    It’s not Kinder Labs research only but American Academy of Pediatrics recommends the same. They say kids quickly hurt their eyes during touch screen viewing. So while longer screen time is extremely bad we should avoid shorter interaction with it because then it becomes a kid’s habit.
