About the Author

Louise Derrington trained as a Social Anthropologist at Edinburgh University before beginning her working life as a journalist. A chance interview about the teaching of hearing impaired children in Holland caused her to change direction and train as a teacher of both the hearing impaired and special needs. Louise has a low boredom threshold and writing is her new personal challenge.


For any child who aspires to build robot models -- ones that can be powered and move -- this is the ideal book. It includes clear, step-by-step instruction, with illustrations at every stage, equipment lists and templates to help * Parents In Touch *
The instructions given for all of the projects are very concise and easy to follow ... A good book for any aspiring inventors and the projects could easily be used as classroom activities too * School Librarian *
