Product Description

Coding is a way of thinking - not just a computer-based activity.

How to be a Coder features fun craft activities that will teach kids key concepts of computer programming - and which can be done completely offline. Then they can put those skills into practice by trying out the simple programs provided in the online, child-friendly computer language Scratch.

This crafty coding book breaks down the principles of coding into bite-sized chunks that will get you thinking like a computer scientist in no time. Learn about loops by making a friendship bracelet, find out about programming by planning a scavenger hunt, and discover how functions work with paper fortune tellers. Children can then use their new knowledge to code for real by following the clear instructions to build programs in Scratch 3.0.

Perfect for kids aged 7-9, the various STEAM activities will help teach children the crucial skills of logical thinking that will give them a head-start for when they begin programming on a computer.

144 pages, hardcover. Ages 7-9 / Grades 2-4.
