Eureka! Problem Solving With LEGO® Robotics

  • Introduces the reader to the art of tackling open ended engineering problems
  • Designed specifically for use with the LEGO Education robotics platform
  • Presents a vast array of science, technology, engineering, and math problems
  • Does not require specific versions of hardware or software
  • Written by Claude Baumann
The Eureka! LEGO robotics book differs from its predecessors because it does not promote the LEGO MINDSTORMS® package as an end in itself but rather as a versatile educational tool that can help readers develop their problem-solving capabilities.

The book is intended for readers who wish to tackle demanding science and technology challenges using LEGO robotics because of personal interest and for readers who want to encourage their children’s participation in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) activities. It takes advantage of NI LabVIEW software to provide ideas about the interdisciplinary nature of robotics as well as demonstrate the possibilities that LEGO offers. The book also presents robotics projects from the youth robotics lab at Boulette Institute of Technology (BIT). It features inspiring historical figures along with BIT students who have solved spectacular problems. Readers are invited to join this community in solving exciting problems of their own.

Readers also can explore problem-solving robots that intelligently act and react within their environments and examine open-ended projects that will inspire them to become enthusiastic problem solvers. The LEGO robots presented in this book are programmed exclusively with LabVIEW software.
