Abstract:

"Makers of all ages are using LEGO bricks to create robots. In this book, students learn more about this recent innovation through detailed explanations built to foster creativity and critical thinking. Fun, engaging text introduces readers to new ideas and builds on maker-related concepts they may already know. Additional tools, including a glossary and an index, help students learn new vocabulary and locate information."--

FIRST robotics stands for "For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology." A national organization founded by inventor Dean Kamen, it hosts the FIRST robotics competition, teaching children to combine real-world problem solving and hands-on inventing. And the first level involves using LEGO bricks, motors, and simple sensors to create basic robots!
