Robots Rule the School, the fourth book in The DATA Set series, brings together Gabe, Laura, Cesar, and their classmates for another exciting adventure! In this story, the Data Set’s science teacher gives the students an interesting assignment: to invent their own robot! There is  one condition: the robots must do something that will make their lives better. Laura, Gabe, and Cesar, the three “whiz kids” of Newtonburg Elementary, must now  engage in the design process by ideating and developing robot prototypes, but their conventional teamwork agenda is jeopardized when a new student joins in on the project. As the students begin working on their robots, problems arise as the robots begin to malfunction and take over the school. In order to save the school, the students are challenged to work as a team to problem solve given their robotic requirements. This is a thrilling and engaging story with plenty of illustrations to help tell the story of the diverse characters and their robots. Furthermore, the concept of making our lives better lies at the very heart of most engineering problems, and by reading this book, children will thoroughly engage in that concept.
