Kidbotics (KIBO) NEW in 2017! Yes, young children can be introduced to beginning robotics at Renaissance! Renaissance has the perfect Robot for that! Fun and intuitive, KIBO provides the best beginning creative robotic opportunity. 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. KIBO is a robot kit specifically designed for young children. It is different from anything 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. with KIBO, program it to do what they want, and decorate it. They scan the blocks with the KIBO body to tell the robot what to do. They press the button and the robot comes alive. With KIBO, young children can become programmers, engineers, designers, artists, dancers, choreographers and writers. And unlike other activity kits out there, KIBO is based on over 15 years of research in learning technologies and child development at Tufts University, including testing with over 300 children and 50 teachers. We work on the best Lego team projects, build tons of sets and our many creative free building themes (such as airports, farms, space stations, etc.) rounds out the many engaging, fun learning activities in this awesome Lego focused camp! Early Learning Robotics has just been developed and is NEW to Northern Virginia, and we know kids will love it!
