Summary, etc.:
"You see them at the movies and on TV, but you also have them in the kitchen and on your computer. They help us forecast the weather, they adjust the fridge temperature, and they vacuum the dust from our homes in our absence. Robots are everywhere! But we love this invasion, especially those of us into STEM activities. Little by little, these creatures have almost become our best friends. That's why you need to get to know them well, to know where they come from, how they work, and what their uses are. You will find this and much more in this book. In addition, you'll learn how to build your own basic robots. That's a good plan, right? Quick! Find your favorite seat, get yourself comfy, open this book, and say hello to our robots!, "--Page 4 of cover.
