Paul Virr


Paul Virr, STEM ambassador for the Bath Royal Scientific and Literary Institute, introduces readers to the myriad robots doing all the dull, dirty and dangerous work in our world.

This new addition to the Brainiac series approaches science and technology from a creative angle to make STEM learning as accessible and fun as possible. Hands-on activities include building a grippy robot hand, making a mechanical hopping frog, testing yourself for artificial intelligence, designing a battle-bot, and writing the first bill of robot rights. Readers will also find out which gross and scary jobs only robots can do, how nanobots could battle bugs inside the human body and why self-driving cars save lives.
