A coding-free guide to building 10 simple, unique, and entertaining robots using everyday materials and a few electronic components.

Robots for Kids is a fun, coding-free beginner’s guide to basic robotics. The book’s 10 simple and entertaining robots can all be built using only common materials, basic tools, and some basic electronic components. You will use dryer lint brushes and plumbing flange repair rings to make a street sweeper-like bot that buffs the floors as it moves; build a rolling barrel robot using a paint can and servo motor; make a sail bot from a utensil holder and plastic sheet that changes direction when activated by wind; and much more!
