Coding Games in Scratch Paperback Book
Much like the greatest software developers who started coding when they were kids, this book teaches children ages 8–12 how to program their own games in Scratch, a popular and free programming language. Supports STEM education initiatives and promotes creative thinking, collaboration, problem solving and systematic reasoning skills. No prior coding experience necessary. Kids learn how to build single and multiplayer platform games, create puzzles and memory games, race through mazes and add animation. Essential coding concepts are explained through 8 game projects with step-by-step instructions and fun visuals. Students will need a computer, Adobe version 10.2 or later and an Internet connection to do the exercises in the book. Softcover. ISBN 978-1-46543-935-2 2015.
