Books, Manuscripts
An updated guide to help assist children to develop coding skills, this book will show kids how to have fun with Scratch 3.0 by creating games, and more. Simple instructions and graphics breakdown different coding skills so kids learn all the code they need to build, play and share their favourite games with friends. Kids will love the step-by-step, visual approach that makes even the most difficult coding concepts fun and easy to understand. Blending theory with the practical task of creating exciting games children will learn the fundamentals of computer programming by showing them how to build their own games. Coding theory is taught through practical tasks, so young programmers don't just learn how computer code works, but also why it's done that way. The Jumpy Monkey character will show them how to simulate gravity in games, or give Dog's Dinner a go to learn about collision detection. The coding possibilities are endless!
