In The LEGO BOOST Activity Book, readers will learn the ins-and-outs of building and programming their BOOST robots with a fun, project-based approach.
Readers will start by building the basic rover, MARIO. Throughout the chapters, they’ll learn to add complexity to their rover by controlling its movements, making it react to sounds, colors, and have it follow lines, walls, and even their own hands. Then, they’ll add a scanner that will allow MARIO to explore its surroundings, detect and shoot targets, and remote control it in a time-trial game.
After learning those basics, readers will build CYBOT: a humanoid walking robot that can explore, move its head and arms, talk, and react to vocal commands.
The LEGO BOOST Activity Book is packed with exercises and open-ended challenges that will have the reader think creatively and apply that to their own builds!

The Shoot and Stop c-blocks description should have been shown right before the “making the main program” section at page 133. Use the figures below to reproduce them.
The Reset c-block fails to initialize the BrickPecker robot if the LEGO BOOST Hub batteries are low. Here’s an alternative sequence for the composite block that might solve the problem. Thanks to Jonty Rowlands for the input.
