Mining can be a dirty and dangerous business. Some mines are difficult, if not impossible, for humans to reach. Enter our ever-evolving world of robotics. They help clean up mining disasters, drill into the ocean floor, and more. Young readers will "dig" the informational text, intriguing facts, and full-color images. A "Words to Know" feature helps students master new vocabulary. Mining Robots includes an activity that shows readers how to make their own rubber band-powered trucks in support of the NGSS K-2 Engineering Design Standards.
