Computer coding is now firmly on the Australian education agenda, as a key skill for children to start learning. Computer Coding for Kids is a unique step-by-step guide, perfect for kids interested in computer programming and how computers work.
A computer program is a set of instructions that a computer follows to complete a task. ‘Coding’, or ‘programming’, means writing the step-by-step instructions that tell the computer what to do. Avoiding computer jargon, this book guides children through creating computer programs, starting with the very basics. Computer Coding for Kids is the only programming book that teaches both Scratch and Python programming languages, with illustrated, simple, step-by-step explanations that make the complex art of computer programming clear for the complete beginner. Starting with simple explanations of programming basics, the book progresses to more advanced projects where children can build their own games.
Computer Coding for Kids is ideal for kids looking to take their first steps into programming, as well as those that are already interested and eager to learn more.
