520 Take your kids from browsing to building the web with Help
Your Kids With Computer Coding. Computer programming is
one of the fastest-growing industries and highest paid
college degrees, and learning to code promotes a way of
thinking helpful for every budding brain. Yet 9 out of 10
schools don't even offer computer science classes to
students, according to code.org. Help correct this
disparity by introducing your kids to the world of
computer programming early, with a fun and approachable
method. This book begins by introducing the essential
concepts of programming with simple instructions, and
without specialized computer lingo. Fun projects
throughout let kids start putting their computer skills
into practice and build their own code using Scratch
programming and Python, the two most popular languages.
Also included are profiles on coding stars and insights in
technology such as the Raspberry Pi mini computer.
