hardback    ISBN 13: 9781409591511 | ISBN 10: 1409591514

A colourful and friendly introduction that explains what goes on inside computers, how coding works and how computers talk to each other across the internet.
 
Flaps to lift on every page show how computers “think”, while activities such as counting in binary and matching numbers to colours explain how they store data.
 
The principles of coding, algorithms and flowcharts are explained with a treasure hunt game, and there are examples of simple programs in the coding language Scratch™.
 
Includes internet links to specially selected websites where children can discover more coding ideas, tips and games.
 
Computer coding is now a compulsory topic on the UK National Curriculum for primary schools, and children learn to create and debug simple programs at Key Stage 1.
 
Age: 7+
