Posted By KinderLab Christina On June 20, 2022 in Media Coverage
We are thrilled to be included in this eSchoolNews article which discusses 6 coding and robotics tools that help students develop critical skills for success.
The article reads in part:
“Introducing students to coding and robotics gives them early exposure to STEM in general. This early exposure, according to research, is key to the future of the workforce.
Aside from the cool factor K-12 coding and robotics offers, students will learn a number of skills they’ll take with them well into adulthood, including creativity, problem solving, and the ability to fail without quitting. These skills stick around even if students don’t pursue STEM-related study paths or careers later in their lives.
Coding and robotics can be introduced in any subject, with a little creativity.”
KIBO is one of the 6 tools featured to help students develop valuable STEM skills.
“KIBO: KIBO is an easy and fun way to bring robotics and coding to your young learners and spark their interest in STEAM. This hands on, screen-free robot kit for kids let 4- to 7-year-olds create, design, decorate and bring their own robot to life. 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.”
