Description-

  • Once, robots were only found in science fiction books and movies. Today, robots are everywhere! They assemble massive cars and tiny computer chips. They help doctors do delicate surgery. They vacuum our houses and mow our lawns. Robot toys play with us, follow our commands, and respond to our moods. We even send robots to explore the depths of the ocean and the expanse of space. In Robotics, children ages 9 and up learn how robots affect both the future and the present. Hands-on activities make learning both fun and lasting.

Reviews-

  • DOGO Books ilumva - awesome
  • Publisher's Weekly

    July 9, 2012
    Ceceri’s cartoon-illustrated activity book, an addition to the Build It Yourself series, introduces readers to robotics, with information on its history, different robot technologies, and the evolution of the field. Readers are invited to construct their own basic robots, including a pressure sensor that uses an LED light bulb, a watch battery, and aluminum foil; and a model solenoid (used in devices like car door locks), which requires a battery, insulated wire, drinking straws, and other materials. Light in tone but dense with information, this guide should appeal to those who already have a strong interest in the topic and are ready for a hands-on challenge. Ages 9–12.

  • Al Dien, Professor of Chinese, Emeritus, Stanford University, presenter, Along the Silk Road, interactive workshop for middle school teachers

    "I am very much impressed with this book. It is imaginative and, despite being written for children, not at all 'dumbed down.' Full of interesting information presented in ways that are certain to stir the imagination of its intended audience, features such as 'Words to know,' 'Make your own,' and 'Fascinating Facts' all add to the effectiveness of the presentation."

  • James Floyd Kelly, author, LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT-G Programming Guide

    "If you've got a child who is a robot fanatic, you must grab a copy of this book. Over a dozen hands-on projects and easy-to-understand technical explanations are going to make it a hit with teachers and parents and a must-have for kids."

  • Ed Sobey, PhD, author, The Way Toys Work and Unscrewed, cofounder of Kids Invent!

    "Kathy Ceceri has packed this readable book with tons of information to inspire kids to pursue robots. The activities are creative and will prepare kids to build robots. For children too young to program computers and do soldering, this is the book to whet their appetite for robotics."

  • Daniel H. Wilson, PhD., author of Robopocalypse

    "These exciting, bite-sized science experiments will catapult young readers into the world of robotics."

  • Publishers Weekly (July 9, 2012)

    "Light in tone but dense with information, this guide should appeal to those who already have a strong interest in the topic and are ready for a hands-on challenge."
