Reviews and Testimonials
I believe that [this book] will help to serve as a pathfinder for students and educators alike, providing some of the basics of robotic theory and ways to capture the interest of and generate excitement for those in the learning environment through the use of formal, informal (outside of the classroom), and competitive robotic educational genres. Further, it provides information and discussions for determining methods of measurement regarding our ability to change the way we learn, and the associated attitudes amidst a developing workforce.

Organized into four sections, the work begins with theoretical and instructional perspectives on the use of robots in K-12 education, including how robotics works and how to measure the impact, as well as STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) career skills that can be developed through effective use. [...] This is valuable to any academic collection, from kindergarten through college, where robotics might be considered for use in the curriculum or as an extracurricular activity.
