National Geographic KiDS partnered with +rehab studio to create the T.Rex chatbot to educate children about dinosaurs. Tina the T.Rex can interact with kids on Facebook Messenger.

The T.Rex chatbot is considered an edu-bot as it is oriented at educating kids about dinosaur facts. Tina encourages kids to ask about her appearance and to ask questions to learn about her life. The chatbot is currently available on the Facebook pages in the UK, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.

The popularity of chatbots make it possible for kids to interact with technology to learn about the extinct T-Rex from 65 million years ago. The National Geographic KiDS chatbot is a continuation of various organizations using technology to educate kids in fun and interactive ways.
