DK Discovery Day ~ Scratch Challenge ~ GIVEAWAY!

I’ve heard it said quite a few times in the past year or two that computer programming is the language of the future. With the way that the technological world is progressing I wouldn’t be surprised if they are correct! This past year I’ve encouraged our oldest to spend some time beginning to learn about this world of computer programming. It all looks quite complicated to me ;), but my son’s young mind has caught on very quickly. We’ve started by using a free program called Scratch.

The challenge comes when we run out of ideas to make on Scratch and since we’re still learning about the program, it’s helpful to have some direction, tips and/or tutorials to follow. We’ve found some great books to help us with this, including Scratch Challenge Workbook from DK Canada.

The Scratch Challenge Workbook is perfect for kids ages 6-9 who are ready to move on from coding beginner projects in Scratch. This book is filled challenges to make use of the free computer coding program. There are lots of visual aids to help you along and before you know it you’ll be creating bigger and better projects in Scratch!

My son has had a lot of fun building his own computer games and it’s fabulous to see him progressing to being able to make more intricate computer games and projects! Scratch supports STEM education initiatives and teaches kids to think creatively and systematically. DK’s coding books have never disappointed us, and are always full of step-by-step directions that make learning about the world of coding both fun and easy.

WIN IT!
