Synopsis

LEGO Mindstorms NXT: The Mayan Adventure presents a multipart fictional story as the premise for introducing and detailing a unique robot. The story s main character, Max, is on an archaeological expedition with his uncle in the jungles of Guatemala to investigate a newly discovered Mayan pyramid. During the expedition, the team encounters various problems. And each problem is solved with the help of a unique robot that Max creates. Following each chapter in which a new problem is introduced is a "theory" chapter that discusses the concepts and provides the programming knowledge you need for creating the robot. The robot "solution" chapter ultimately follows. Over the course of the book, you ll follow along as Max and the expedition team use the Lego Mindstorms NXT kit to overcome obstacles and move deeper into the Mayan pyramid. * This book shows how to design a NXT robot to solve real-world problems. * It includes worksheets that encourage constructive brainstorming techniques. * You ll gain access to four new and unique robot designs. * This book is suitable for adults and kids exploring NXT.

Der Markt der NXT-Bücher wächst stetig. Damit war zu rechnen: LEGO macht mit dem RCX-Nachfolger ein gutes Geschäft und damit boomt auch der Sekundärmarkt. Dieses Einstiegerbuch hat dabei eine Marktlücke gefunden und sollte sich dort spielend etablieren: Es bietet mit einer im Schwierigkeitsgrad steigenden Abfolge von Aufgaben (inkl. Lösungsbauanleitungen, -programmen und -motivation) alles, was man für eine erfolgreiche Robotik-AG braucht.

Zentrales Thema des Buchs ist (wie im Untertitel angedeutet) die Schilderung einer Ausgrabungsexpedition zu den Tempeln der Mayas. Dabei kann Evan, der Neffe eines der Archäologen, mit seinem Mindstorms-NXT-Baukasten viele schwierige Aufgaben lösen, die für Menschen zunächst unlösbar erscheinen ...

Diese Hintergrundstory liefert den Plot für eine Reihe von Aufgaben, die man mit Kindern Schritt für Schritt erkunden kann. Der Bau eines jeweils geeigneten Roboters, die Programmierung, ja selbst die Dokumentation der eigenen Arbeit werden dabei thematisiert und an Beispielen gezeigt. Geht es Anfangs noch um einen Fahrroboter, so werden die folgenden Aufgaben anspruchsvoller und die gezeigten Lösungen sind keineswegs 08/15. Leider hat das Buch nur 5 Aufgaben - man möchte eigentlich sofort weitermachen und sich neuen Herausforderungen stellen. Diese Aufgaben sind aber sehr detailliert besprochen: Keine Lösung fällt vom Himmel; der Autor versucht vielmehr, möglichst auch den Lösungsfindungsprozess zu begleiten.

Fazit: Eine tolle Idee - ein sehr solides Buch - stundenlang Spass mit verzwickten Bau- und Programmierrätseln. Und am Ende findet man auch noch die Beschreibung für einen neuen LEGO-Sensor (einen Kompass von HiTechnics). SUPER!!

Wer die dem Kasten beiliegenden Bots gebaut hat- aber wem noch das nötige Geschick fehlt, eigene Bots zu entwerfen, für den dürfte dieses Buch sehr interessant sein. Die vorgestellten Baupläne sind in eine witzige Rahmenhandlung eingebettet. Es wird immmer die Aufgabe, die Konstruktion und schließlich die Programmierung vorgestellt.

HASH(0x8806ad14) von 5 Sternen I'm the Author, so buyer beware :) 14. Dezember 2006
Von J. Kelly - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The description that Amazon is providing lacks detail, so let me please share with you how this book works.

First, there are 5 robot projects that require one (1) NXT robotics kit - preferably the retail kit, but the educational kit will work with some minor substitutions.

The book has a storyline running through it - Evan is on vacation with his archaeologist uncle in Guatemala, exploring a newly discovered Mayan tomb. The archaeology team begins to encounter problems in accessing areas of the tomb and Evan comes to the rescue by offering to build small robots that can go in and accomplish certain tasks that a human cannot.

The book is broken into 5 sections. Each section has 1 chapter that has part of the fictional story. The story starts in Chapter 1 and continues in chapters 5, 9, 13, 17, and concludes in chapter 21.

Next, each section contains a "building theory" chapter that helps you to examine the problem the archaeology team has encountered and to brainstorm (mindstorm) a robotics solution. You use a "Design Journal Page" for each robot (and I've included 6 blank copies in the back of the book for you to follow along). These theory chapters are found in chapters 2, 6, 10, 14, and 18.

Finally, complete building instructions (photos) are provided for all 5 robots in chapters 3, 7, 11, 15, and 19. Programming instructions (screenshots of the NXT-G programming language) are provided in chapters 4, 8, 12, 16, and 20. In these chapters you'll also find instructions for setting up your "testing environment" to simulate the challenges faced by the archaeological team.

Also included are some appendices that cover websites, blogs, how to document your own robot creations, NXTLOG (community web tool) and the new Compass Sensor.

When brainstorming the book, I thought about just a book full of robot building instructions, but then I realized it would be more fun to wrap the 5 robots up in a story that young readers (and some young-hearted adults) will find entertaining and inspiring.

I hope you like the book... I'm very proud of it and I provide my email address in the book for my readers to send me pictures and comments about their experience with the book.

HASH(0x8808557c) von 5 Sternen A GREAT Reference Book for Kids Interested in Robotics 15. Dezember 2006
Von Rail - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
My 13-year old son loves the NXT, but he's too busy to sit down with a kit and make his own projects. He has BEGGED for step-by-step building and programming instructions for NXT robots.

This book has met his need in spades.

There are five robots in the book to build and program, and step-by-step instructions are provided for each. The book also has a friendly, encouraging style, which kids and parents will appreciate.

The model instructions that come with the NXT kit are good, but the kit only provides instructions for building four robots. Your child will go through those robots in a hurry! (Mine did). If there are parents out there who have purchased an NXT kit for their child, then I'd encourage you to make this book a companion purchase.

For those kids who DO have time to get creative, the book encourages that, too. Each robot in the book is given a specific "mission" to complete, and kids are encouraged to complete the mission by using their own robot designs. There's a "design journal" in the back of the book, where kids can keep track of their own NXT creations.

This is the ONLY NXT book out there that caters to kids. If you and/or your child are new to the NXT, then this book is a perfect and USEFUL introduction.

HASH(0x88088300) von 5 Sternen Excellent... 29. Dezember 2006
Von Michael J. Johnson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I cannot describe just how great this book is - I am a software engineer with over 13 years of experience and found Mr. Kelly's approach to learning to play with the NXT excellent and beyond my expectations. The first four chapters are broken up logically. Chapter 1 contains a well written story and lays the foundation of the problems and challanges that await the reader. During this chapter the first 'problem' is introduced. The 2nd chapter is devoted exclusively towards reiterating the problem and laying out the analysis of 'how to solve' the problem at hand. Also during this chapter the reader is given an introduction on a "Design Journal" that will later assist them building the solution. The end of the chapter 2, the reader can continue to read chapters 3 and 4 - which layout the author's solution to the problem or spend time on attempting their solution to the problem that was just introduced and analyzed. Chapter 3 deals with the 'hardware' implementation of the solution - specifically the building of the robot. Chapter 4 lays out the software solution. This was exactly the best approach for young readers!! However, don't feel this book is something you can give your child and then walk away. You have to involve yourself in the process - you have to read it, you have to work the solution with your budding LEGO master builder. I am working through the exercises with my 10 year old son who has been interested in robots for a number of months now. He has really enjoyed reading the book and has even started working out his own solutions with the "design journal".

HASH(0x8819d81c) von 5 Sternen Interesting and informative 22. Januar 2007
Von B. Brierly - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I love this book. Having been an Industrial Arts teacher years ago I can appreciate the planning process for each building project. Though I know the story line is more for kids than adults, I am enjoying reading it and then building and performing the robot challenges. I think the Design Journal page is great because it will help me develop robots beyond what is offered in this book. In essence it helps me think! I received the Mindstorms NXT set for Christmas at age 64. I love to build things and haven't had this much fun doing it for years. The Mindstorms NXT is an excellent learning tool for youngsters and an excellent way to keep an "oldster's" mind young. This book truly enhances the learning experience.

HASH(0x88085678) von 5 Sternen Great way to teach kids to program 27. Januar 2007
Von J. Williams - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
My 9 year old son absolutely devoured this book. He talks incessantly about building robots and made his own robot design journal page based on the one in the book. I'm a professional software developer, and I've been searching for a way to teach my kids to program. They can't type, so normal languages are just mechanically too hard. I tried StarLogo, Squeak, and a few others until I found the NXT programming environment. They managed to LEGO-ify programming. This book makes brings it all together in an enjoyable way. A+
