Are you ready to learn about real technology and make it yourself?

Ready, Set, Code! explains how cutting-edge digital technology works and its surprising uses now and in the future. Filled with interesting examples, each chapter explores a different topic, such as artificial intelligence, sensors and data, and applies it with a fun, hands-on coding project. You will learn how to create your own chatbot, translate messages into different languages, construct a burglar alarm, make digital art and music, and launch a citizen science project. Plus, you'll learn how to protect yourself online and much more.

Suitable for beginners, this book provides illustrated step-by-step instructions to teach kids to code with the highly acclaimed Scratch programming language, popular micro:bit mini computers and simple app building tools.

'Ready, Set, Code! teaches computer programming skills to kids aged 8-12 using the open source Scratch language created by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology...Kids are encouraged to create their own versions of real-world technology by building a chatbot, making digital art, creating music and mapping projects are presented alongside facts about technology that will engage inquisitive minds. Teachers will find Ready, Set, Code! useful because it connects to the Australian curriculum and can be used in conjunction with other children's books focused on Scratch programming.' - Books+Publishing
