From the Back Cover
“EJ Parks’s Exploring LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 is a comprehensive introduction to the new EV3 kit. From the starter robot vehicle to a robot that eats and poops, readers of all skill levels will find something new and exciting to activate their imaginations.”
— Dustyn Roberts, author of Making Things Move: DIY Mechanisms for Inventors, Hobbyists, and Artists
“If you thought computer programming wasn’t for you because it’s all about math, you’ll want to read this book. Using a casual, conversational style, EJ Park explains the principles of programming using lots of everyday situations as examples and shows you how to apply those principles to build lots of fun projects with LEGO MINDSTORMS. Park explains programming for the rest of us, showing that it’s all about describing and controlling the behavior of robots that can sense, move, and react to the physical world.”
— Tom Igoe, Associate Arts Professor, New York University, Tisch School of the Arts
“The LEGO EV3 System is a powerful and versatile platform for learning about robotics and physical computing. In Exploring LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3, EJ Park gives us a practical, step-by-step guide that makes it simple to learn how to control motors, use sensors, and program robots. If you are a student, a teacher, a hobbyist, or just curious about robotics, the author and her five robot companions—the Auto Driver, Spy Rabbit, Mr. Turto, Big Belly Bot, and Guapo—will guide you on a journey from beginner to roboticist in no time.”
— Jaymes Dec, Technology Educator, The Marymount School of New York and the NYC Makery
