Early chapters teach budding roboticists how to create working models of robot hands and write pencil and paper computer programs, while later chapters show them how to build robots that move and react to light or touch. A great gateway to getting kids interested in STEM subjects ie.science, technology, engineering, and math, the activities in this book let kids use all their talents to come up with creative solutions to tricky problems and figure out how things work."
