For Educational Institutions

KIBO is available in 4 different robot kits
KIBO is backed by decades of research, led by Marina Umaschi Bers, PhD. professor at the Eliot-Pearson Department of Child Study and Human Development and director DevTech Research Group at Tufts University.
KIBO is different from any other robotic kit because it appeals to both technically minded kids and those that connect more to arts and culture or physical activity.
“Emerged from a need to make widely available Marina Umaschi Bers’ research on new technologies for young children at Tufts University.
Marina grew frustrated when presenting her work at conferences and always being asked: “How can I get a robotic kit?” and not having a good answer.
