BOTS! Robotics Engineering with Makerspace Activities, by author and SEA instructor Kathy Ceceri, is a hands-on introduction to the amazing world of robots for kids 8-12! Learn about their history, explore the systems that make them function, and meet the people who help develop new machines. Then, use everyday crafts materials, household supplies, plus some easy-to-find electronics to build your own working robot models that walk, react to light, sound, and touch, and even think. It’s a complete introductory robotics course in book form. Thanks to Nomad Press for providing a free copy to give away to one SEA Homeschoolers family!
