We are currently using this book series in our homeschooling group- read at home & build in class.
After the first book, very little website support is given.
The first book has discussion questions & videos which were extremely helpful in knowing what to expect- after that, nothing- you're on your own.
Many of the references to radio shack are no longer valid- though you can still sometimes find the items as referenced online-- most items you are left to "wing it" and hope you find the right thing on Amazon.
The kids love the series so far- but finding the correct, quality supplies is frustrating.
I had hoped the nick and tesla website would have continued the support that made using the books so easy.

I chose this book because it looked interesting. I had never previewed the book prior to purchasing it. I couldn't be more pleased with the decision to purchase the book! It has a fun mystery story for the kids that leads into making thier own robots. The kids (ages 10 and 13) were excited to make them and had a great time. They love playing with thier robots they have made. One thing that is not in the book is the how's and the why's about making the robots. But as a homeschooler I use supplemental information to teach how a battery works and other lessons on electricity. I think if the book included how the robot works it might not be as appealing to the kids. I recommend this book from age 7-14. I have already recommended this book to a friend and she has purchased it. I have also pre-ordered the next book and purchased the other one! I hope you love the book as much as we do!

My kids loved this book. Appealed to both kids 5 and 8 boy and girl. We also were able to try a few of the robots ( instructions and part list in booklet that accompanied cds).

My son has been obsessed with Science Bob for a while now and these books are fun and a good story and we have been having a lot of fun doing the projects together. Great Mother Son bonding time!

Good for teens who are interested in building robots as well as enjoying a " who done it" . It is a continuation of Nick and Tesla's adventures with Uncle Newt.

My 8yo loved the first Nick and Tesla book - and this one certainly didn't disappoint. He devoured Robot Army Rampage and is eager for the next one to come out.
