Publisher's Description

Get kids building exciting computer projects, such as animations, games, and mini-movies, with DK Workbooks: Coding in Scratch: Projects Workbook. Perfect for children ages 6–9 who are new to coding, this highly visual workbook is a fun introduction to Scratch, a free computer coding programming language.

With easy-to-follow directions and fun pixel art, DK Workbooks: Coding in Scratch: Projects Workbook helps kids understand the basics of programming and how to create cool projects in Scratch through fun, hands-on learning experiences. All they need is a desktop or laptop with Adobe 10.2 or later, and an internet connection to download Scratch 2.0. Coding can be done without download on https://scratch.mit.edu.

Kids can light up the night sky with their own colorful messages and drawings or make their own music and become the ultimate DJ. They can create a digital portrait of a pet and customize the pictures with sounds and animations, or test their knowledge with a times tables quiz. This workbook is filled with open-ended projects that use art, music, sound effects, and math and can be shared online with friends. Kids can even test their coding knowledge with written vocabulary and programming quizzes at the end of each project.

Supporting STEM education initiatives, computer coding teaches kids how to think creatively, work collaboratively, and reason systematically, and is quickly becoming a necessary and sought-after skill. DK's computer coding books are full of fun exercises with step-by-step guidance, making them the perfect introductory tools for building vital skills in computer programming.
