Description

Coding was once an activity and career path only scientists and engineers could fathom, but that's quickly changing. Today's tech-savvy elementary students are ready for coding!

The eight authoritative guides in this set help young readers grasp the concept of coding by focusing on some of today's most accessible software and hardware. Some volumes in this set show readers how easy it can be to code using visible blocks of information instead of actual coding language. Other volumes focus on simple written-code languages and make potentially difficult topics more accessible to young coders.

Readers are introduced to essential coding terms and concepts, including graphical user interface (GUI), open source resources, and robotics. Manageable text is paired with photographs of kids using computers, and coding examples support the development of computational thinking in elementary grades.
