Reviews for Benedettelli’s The LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 Laboratory:
“So great! The Lego Mindstorms EV3 Laboratory covers mechanical building as well as programming to such an exhaustive degree, and shows how to build five cool models.”
—John Baichtal, Make Magazine
“This informative guide to the LEGO EV3 Mindstorms kit provides clear directions for building and programming five advanced robots. . . . A good addition for schools serving students on robotics or LEGO teams.”
—Amy M. Laughlin, School Library Journal
“One of the best books about Mindstorms that I have found . . . a fantastic book if you are interested in improving both your skills building new robots and your skills creating new programs.”
—The Technic Gear
Reviews for Benedettelli’s The LEGO Boost Activity Book:
“It is hard to believe there is so much stuff in this one book, but there is. One way that happens is the subtle but measurable increase in format for this volume compared to other coding and STEM books by this and other publishers.”
“Like all good educational books this one begins with the basics then builds upon them, introducing new concepts and techniques so that by the end of the book you’ve learned everything . . . highly recommend this book to anyone that wants to take a more structured, grown-up, approach to learning how to program Boost.”
—Huw Millington, Brickset
“A lovely lesson-based book . . . a great curriculum for learning or teaching basic robotics with BOOST. If you’re looking to get into LEGO robotics, this book is a perfect companion!”
