Girl with ArtBot

Once, robots were only found in science fiction books and movies. Today, robots are everywhere! 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 other planets. That’s why robotics -- the science of designing, building and operating robots – is one of the most exciting fields around.

Robotics: Discover the Science and Technology of the Future shows kids ages 9-12 how to make:

  • Robots that walk using gravity!
  • Sensors that react to touch!
  • Robots that turn to follow a light!
  • Computer programs for turtle robots!

Kids will love creating cool robot designs
that really work!
