LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT Zoo! offers step-by-step instructions for building nine animal robots with the NXT Robotics System. Using the book's detailed building and programming instructions, kids (and their parents) are introduced to the MINDSTORMS NXT kit as they build animal-like models of a rabbit, spider, peacock, stegosaurus, and more! But these models don't just sit there-they walk, crawl, hop, and roll. The book will also show you how to make the models sound like the real animals that inspired them. Troubleshooting tips help builders avoid common pitfalls and parts lists make sure they have everything they need before building. An appendix includes ideas for teachers using these models in the classroom.
