Computers are part of our lives today, and while computers are so simple kids can use them, not so many kids (or adults!) know about the code that makes them work. Coding is not only a fun hobby, but is also a skill that's in demand around the world and can open up doors later in life. This fun book is based on Scratch 3.0, a language designed to help kids learn to code!
Kids will love the step-by-step, visual approach that makes even the most difficult coding concepts fun and easy to understand. This book blends coding theory with the practical task of creating exciting games. Children learn the fundamentals of computer programming by seeing how to build their own games. Coding theory is taught through practical tasks, so young programmers don't just learn how computer code works; they learn why it's done that way. 'Jumpy Monkey' shows them how to simulate gravity in their games, or they can give 'Dog's Dinner' a try to learn about collision detection. Once they've zoomed through the book, the possibilities are endless!
224 pages, softcover. Grades 3-7. To use this book, you'll have to download and install Scratch 3.0 (which works on Macs and Windows)
