Explore the World of Robotics and AI

The future is here. Explore the world of robots and artificial intelligence in this kids’ STEM book by robotics professor Dr Henny Admoni.

Hang out in a factory with a pizza-making robot, blast into the past to meet the robot statues in ancient Egyptian temples that spoke to worshippers, and encounter the slithering robot inspired by snakes that can climb trees!

Robots are no longer just the preserve of science fiction. From driverless cars to robots helping in hospitals, the field of robotics is one of the most exciting in modern science. With beautiful illustrations by Amy Grimes, this children’s book explains what robots are, how they are made, and how we can use them in all sorts of amazing ways.

Dr Henny Admoni’s book answers some of the key questions about robotics and AI, such as should we be afraid? It also looks at the positive impact robots can have on us all, from robots who can help in disaster zones to the robotic spacecraft exploring the Solar System and beyond.

The possibilities of robotics and AI are endless. With a hardback cover featuring colourful foil, this book is an ideal gift for technology-mad kids.
