Make science accessible with this essential series that will capture children's imagination while laying the foundation for future learning. With age-appropriate language and an eye-catching design, Discover Science gives young readers the answers to fundamental questions about the human body, animals, planet Earth and the Solar System. In today's wired world, robots are everywhere: in the movies, on TV, in space, in computer games. This title introduces the concept of a robot, and examines the many uses of robots in science, entertainment and industry. Definitions of new words are provided on each page, and at the end children can do one of three hands-on activities to create their own robots.
