KinderLab Robotics Announces New KIBO Guidebook

KinderLab Robotics today expanded its KIBO™ curriculum suite by introducing KIBO Activity Center Guidebook: Activities and Setup Recommendations for a KIBO Activity Center. The new guidebook supplements Creating with KIBO, KinderLab’s core curriculum booklet that covers programming, robotics, and the engineering design process with KIBO.

The guide provides suggestions for supplies and layout, general advice for facilitating activities, and 10 complete lesson plans. Each lesson plan provides specific setup suggestions, tips, and information on addressing cross-curricular connections and academic standards.

KIBO is a robot kit that allows children aged 4–7 to build, program, decorate, and bring their own robot to life without requiring any screen time in front of a tablet or computer.

Activity lesson plans provided in the guidebook include:

  • KIBO Bowling: Students use math skills such as measurement and estimation to program KIBO to reach the pins.
  • KIBO Dance Party: Students learning about world culture combine music, art, and coding to create a KIBO dancer.
  • KIBO Shape Search: Exploring geometry, students program KIBO to draw shapes they find in the classroom.

The KIBO Activity Center Guidebook is available for $30 and can be purchased on the KinderLab Webstore. Customers who purchase two or more KIBO robot kits will receive the Activity Center Guidebook for free. KinderLab customers who already have KIBO can purchase the guidebooks at a 20% discount, with a limit of one per customer. Both offers expire on 9/30/18.
