This is an amazing book for STEAM Projects. This would be great addition in a homeschool, homeschool co-op, or in a classroom setting. Of course you can just work with this one on one with a child.
I like how it introduces robotics and explaining some of the history with it. Then it goes into explaining what a robot is and isn’t. It’s told in a way that you can understand and feel confident explaining to kids.
It covers safety when doing the projects. The supply list is broken down nicely and separates where you can find the material needed both in a local store and online. If you plan on doing every project you could do just one big order or just pick out a few projects. That makes it super easy for planning.
The first chapter has some pretty simple projects like building a simple circuit, LED light, robot night light, and a few other projects. The Chapters then are divided by: Robots at Home, Robots for Entertaining, Robots in Space, Robots on the Job, Robots in the Operating Room, and Robotics and the Future.
Each project has step-by-step instructions with lots of colored pictures. Safety for each project is in a pink color to stand out. Also the projects have a “STEAM Connection” for better understanding. There is a nice glossary in the back if you aren’t familiar with certain words. Also there is a list of websites for additional resources.
This is a neat and will inspire young minds who are interested in robotics.
