Recycled Robots, by Robert Malone, will also get your little guy’s creative juices flowing. This one-of-a-kind book and kit contains the instructions and many items that kids can use to create ten robot projects! It comes with a battery-powered motor and two windup walkers to automate the bots that children can make using common “junk” from their rooms or around the house, like mint tins or drinking straws. Also included in the kit are googly eyes, wooden beads, wooden dowels, punch-out paper templates, wire, stickers, and mounting tape.
And the 144-page book is highly entertaining, too! For example, it starts out with The Three Laws of Robotics:
- A robot may not injure a human being or allow a human being to come to harm.
- A robot must obey the orders of human beings except when it would conflict with the First Law.
- A robot must protect his own existence as long as it does not conflict with the First or Second Laws.
