Product Description

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 and perfect for complete beginners.

Make a Dino Dance Party or create your own electronic birthday cards. Build games, simulations, and mind-bending graphics as you discover the awesome things computer programmers can do with Scratch 3.0. Coding Projects in Scratch, 2nd Edition, uses a visual step-by-step approach to split complicated code into manageable, easy-to-digest chunks so that the most impressive projects become possible.

224 pages, softcover. Grades 4-7. To use this book, you'll have to download and install Scratch 3.0 (which works on Macs and Windows)
