Many years ago, humans used computers to practice chess or do other tasks. However, computers couldn’t move. So robots were invented. Now we have electronic robots who can complete a variety of tasks. Playing soccer, rescuing humans, and handling fragile materials are all things that current robots can do. This book explores different robot competitions and the history of robotics. Who knows what robots will be doing years from now?
Organized in easy-to-read chapters with lots of pictures, this book is an excellent source for grade school children to learn about robotics and robot competitions. Vocabulary words are bolded in the text and are defined in a glossary at the end of the book. There is also a timeline in the back, to chronologically visualize the history of robots and competitions as discussed in earlier chapters. The information is presented in a visually appealing and informative way. This book is great for students and children interested in robots!
