They'll master Scratch 3.0, the brand-new version of the world's most popular coding language for beginners. This will let them discover what makes a computer work while learning how to build their own computer programs and games.
Once they're Scratch experts, it's on to the more complex Python programming language to delve even more deeply into the technology that surrounds us every day. Help Your Kids with Computer Coding uses a simple, visual layout to guide budding programmers step by step through the ins and outs of computer code, from algorithms to variables, even showing them how to find and fix bugs in their code. Before you know it, they'll be creating their own programs from scratch.
