From the creative mind of author, robotics instructor, and frequent NXT Step Blog contributor Laurens Valk, The LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT 2.0 Adventure Book is packed with building and programming instructions for eight innovative robots. The Adventure Book follows two astronauts through rigorous ground training that in the basics of programming NXT robots. As the book progresses, the astronauts (and you) learn how to build and program increasingly sophisticated robots. When the astronauts depart for their mission, you will learn essential programming skills, including how to make robots move and how to use sensors. With solid programming instruction and crystal clear, full color building instructions, you will create robots like Strider, the six-legged walking creature, CCC, a vertically moving vehicle, and BS-61, a machine that sorts by color and size. The LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT 2.0 Adventure Book gives you the knowledge to not only build these models, but to develop your own out-of-this-world creations.
