Bob Katovich combines his robot-building expertise and his trademark whimsy to deliver a book that is engaging, approachable, and highly educational. Appropriate for the classroom, a makerspace, or at home, each project utilizes simple materials and methods to create myriad robotic designs that work as-is but also have the potential to be limitlessly expanded upon. This is a must-have for anyone searching for an empowering and humorous introduction to robotics.”―Alison Earnhart, NBCT, engineering educator “Bob’s well-organized book easily guides young readers and hobbyists to small electronics mastery while also providing cultural context and even whimsical flair.
