Build and test a range of REAL working models in this series aimed at inventors and engineers of the future
So you want to build your own robot models? Real ones that you can power and move?
Well now you can, with How to Build. Inside you'll find simple instructions, equipment lists and templates to help you make working models, including a robotic hand, bristle-bot, drawing robot, scrub-bot, solar fan robot and "Robbo the Robot".
This series is aimed at budding inventors and engineers of the future, and contains builds which require adult supervision. It supports design and technology skills and learning, and is ideal for use at home, school and at STEM clubs.
Louise Derrington trained as a Social Anthropologist at Edinburgh University before beginning her working life as a journalist. A chance interview about the teaching of hearing impaired children in Holland caused her to change direction and train as a teacher of both the hearing impaired and special needs. Louise has a low boredom threshold and writing is her new personal challenge.
