BPOS pre-k introducing coding and robotics using KIBO
The Brooklyn Preschool of Science is a firm believer of utilizing thematic based units rooted in the sciences to teach all students in the most holistic of ways. These units of study are generally broken down into the life sciences and the physical sciences. We are beyond excited to announce the addition of KIBO, robotics for kids to our yearly curriculum. KIBO is a screen-free robot kit for our preschoolers. Using KIBO children will create, design, decorate and bring their own robot to life! It is an exciting opportunity to bring robotics and coding to BPOS so our young scientists can spark their interest in robotics and more specifically computational learning.
Here are some of the amazing learning opportunities
- 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.
- KIBO has proven efficacy in helping kids learn STEAM, and getting them excited about it!
