All you need to make 5 amazing robots. Ultimate Robot Kit includes: power unit, plastic hears, dowels, disks, bodywork, and stickers. These components combine to produce five amazingly talented robots. Each robot has its own skill-based "personality" and its own special way of working. Robots, Androids, Cybernauts is a guidebook that explains all there is to know about robots: how they started, how they work, and how they are going to change our lives in the future. 12 cards show clear, step-by-step instructions and use high-tech images to detail each robot's size, shape, special functions, and strength. The knowledge gained in making the four robots allows children to progress to designing and making a fifth robot to their own specifications. The topics explored support the Science and Technology Curriculum.

Review:

From the depths of the deep blue sea to the mysterious world of space, robots are up to the task of exploring, traveling, saving lives, or making life easier for human beings. David Eckhold's Ultimate Robot Kit makes life a whole lot more fun for human beings! This giant kit includes almost everything needed to construct four amazing robots, as well as a 24-page "Robot File," which explains the origins of robots, how they work, and how they are going to change our lives. Twelve instruction cards offer clear step-by-step directions to create the marvelous BounceBot, CreepycrawlyBot, KnotBot, and GobbleBot. Sturdy, simple cardboard and plastic components allow children to design and build working mechanical models quickly and easily, while they discover the essential robot skills of mobility, manipulation, programming, and intelligence. Building the first four bots gives kids the know-how to design a robot to their own specifications, and might even put these future engineers on a thrilling career path! (Ages 8 to 12) --Emilie Coulter
