Review

Featured titleSchool Library Journal April 2015 Focus on Robo Reads"
"Robot types and features from the past, present, and near future are introduced in this wide-ranging overview. Twenty hands-on activities relate directly to the concepts introduced in the narrative. A 'WobbleBot' project for example, demonstrates robot movements in a simple, doable form. Cartoon illustrations support the narrative and the clear instructions."

Chicago Public Library selects Robotics as one of their best of the best books for Kids for 2013!

Featured title inSchool Library Journal December 2013 "Focus on Inventions".

Children's Literature Review
' . . . Ceceri provides a history and current uses of robots, twenty fairly easy hands-on experiments, and technical discussion of how robots are put together.'

5-Minutes for books
"Robotics : Discover the Science and Technology of the Future with 20 Projects is a dream book for the young person who likes to tinker around. All they have to do is open the pages and let their imagination go to town! It is filled with information relating to the history of robots, how you define what is and what is not a robot, and what their uses are. Then, of course, there are twenty experiments contained inside these pages for you to create your own robot. . .I highly recommendRobotics , both for the information that it includes and for the creativity it fosters."

Publisher's Weekly
"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. . . 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.

Ed Sobey, Ph.D., Global Evangelist for Creative Learning, Co-founder of Kids Invent!
'Kathy Ceceri has packed this readable book with tons of information to inspire kids to pursue robotics. The activities are creative and will prepare kids to build their own robots. For children too young to program computers and use soldering equipment, this is the book to whet their appetite for robotics.'

James Floyd Kelly, Writer ofLEGO Mindstorms books
'I'm not sure what I like best about this book-the excellent hands-on projects or the easy-to-follow technical discussions or the behind-the-scenes stories about robots in the real world. Thankfully they're all wrapped up in one great book for kids.'

Daniel H. Wilson Ph.D., author ofRobopocalypse
'These exciting, bite-sized science experiments will catapult young readers into the world of robotics. Just remember to use your newfound powers only for good!'
"

From the Inside Flap

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 present and the future, as well as the science and technology behind these fascinating creations. Hands-on activities make learning both fun and lasting.

Robotics meets common core state standards in language arts for reading informational text and literary nonfiction and is aligned with Next Generation Science Standards. Guided Reading Levels and Lexile measurements indicate grade level and text complexity.
