Design your own robot with James Foley - Competitions & Special Promotions

Design your own robot with James Foley

July 29, 2016

Sally Tinker of S. Tinker Inc. is the world's foremost inventor under the age of 12 and creator of Brobot: Just as a Brother Should Be (patent pending). Fremantle Press is offering five lucky schools the chance to win two special Brobot gift packs: one for the classroom and one for the person who designs the best robot.

Each gift pack features a poster and bookmark plus a signed copy of Brobot the book. Brobot is James Foley's tell-all authorised biography of the S. Tinker Inc. story in graphic detail. From designing the perfect brother to the testing phase, from the euphoria of launching Brobot to the heartbreak of decommissioning him, this no-holds-barred true story will electrify anyone who dreams of becoming an inventor, an entrepreneur or both.
