Product description

Unless you live in a hole far from anywhere, you know the future is computer tech. It’s everywhere – in space rockets, microwaves, phones and even the movies you watch. It seems like computers can do everything. But there’s one thing they can’t do: think from scratch. They need clear instructions to get started (known as programs). The person who writes the programs has all the power! Do you like the sound of that? Then read this book: a clear and witty guide to making your own programs. It’s packed with activities, puzzles and even a coding careers section to help you plan your next step.

  • Explore coding languages like Scratch, LOGO and Python
  • Have a go with fun coding activities and puzzles
  • Lots of inspiring true stories and ‘Computer Hero’ examples
  • A great support for the new KS1 and KS2 computing curriculum
