The Chronicles of Ms. Clarke's Class: Battling Bots is the second book in a STEM / STEAM themed series designed for children ages 8-12. In the series, the reader explores the world of science and technology through the eyes of Ms. Clarke's fifth-grade students.
Design, build, program, compete! Following the success of Science Night, Ms. Clarke wants to keep the STEM momentum going in class 5B with a field trip to a high school robotics competition.
As soon as those battling bots are in sight, Emilio, an easy-going dreamer, and Sadie, a driven inventor, immediately want to start a class robotics team.
Can they convince Ms. Clarke and the other students to compete in the school's first-ever Fifth Grade Robotics Competition?
