We were overwhelmed, but not surprised by the amount of kids that wanted to join our Kibo Robo workshops. In this workshop, we were all about teaching kids a different way to learn how to do basic coding, and most importantly how to think, plan out a solution and then solve a problem as a team.
The idea of sitting in front of a computer to learn how to code?! Please no! Yawn! Play is a big part of how kids learn, and it shouldn’t be any different even if it's learning about coding. We want to encourage kids to play with the concepts of coding, by physically coding with scanners, small blocks, chalks and boxes. To put kids in the shoe of a robot, we got creative by encouraging dressing up as robots and even decorating Kibo before programming it.
