KIBO the Robot Bird Migrates With Yavneh First Graders

The budding engineers of Yavneh’s first grade are integrating their bird study and the KIBO Robotics program. KIBO became a bird in flight and the students programmed KIBO to migrate to a warmer climate. The students had an engaging session using KIBO’s light sensor (eye) and the new parameter “until dark.” Shining a light on KIBO’s light sensor kept bird KIBO flying down the road, covering KIBO’s light sensor created dark and made KIBO end the journey. The collaboration and high level planning and problem solving skills are evident throughout this process. The room is charged with the students working together to learn the new program and combine it with previous knowledge. The class always ends with a technology circle in which the children beautifully express their learning process and problems they solved. Each student has been writing about every lesson in their engineering design journal.
