When kids join Coder Academy, they undertake a series of imaginative and challenging activities that help them to begin to write code in Scratch and HTML. With fun activities on and off the computer, this book encourages kids to be creative with code. They create a character and then animate it in code, write a tune and play it on their computer, and design a simple game and website. In the Coders Kit at the back of the book, there is a game, poster and stickers. And, there's a robot model to press out and make on the books cover flaps. Fun and educational, kids can learn about this essential skill in a fresh and playful way.
