Description of this Book

Scratch 3.0 has landed, so stay ahead of the curve with this fully-updated guide for beginner coders. Kids will love the step-by-step, visual approach that makes even the most difficult coding concepts fun and easy to understand. Computer Coding Games for Kids blends coding theory with the practical task of creating exciting games. Children will learn the fundamentals of computer programming by showing them how to build their own games. Coding theory is taught through practical tasks, so young programmers don't just learn how computer code works, but also why it's done that way. Jumpy Monkey will show them how to simulate gravity in their games, or give Dog's Dinner a go to learn about collision detection. Once they've whizzed through the book, the possibilities are endless!
