"This fun and educational introduction to the exciting field of robotics, the science of designing, building, and operating robots, gives kids the basic tools for creating their own robots using ordinary craft materials and parts salvaged from recycled toys and other household devices."--Amazon.

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.
