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 Python, one of the world's most widely-used coding languages.
Just like learning any language, immersion is the best way to learn - just follow the numbered steps and you'll be building apps, games, graphics, and puzzles in no time - while having fun! Kids will create games, crack codes, compose quizzes, and more. This book assumes no prior knowledge and begins with "What is coding?" and an introduction to Python. Instructions are easy to understand, with images that show windows as they'll appear on your computer, step-by-step instructions, and helpful sidebar notes.
224 pages, softcover. Grades 4-7. To use this book, you'll have to download and install Python 3 (which works on Macs and Windows)
