Synopsis

Algorithms and Bugs by Heather Lyons, Elizabeth Tweedale

This book will help budding young programmers explore two fundamental elements of computer code: algorithms, and what happens when they're full of bugs! Learn how to write algorithms that direct computers to search, sort and make decisions, then hop online to try out your new skills on the companion website. Let's get coding! Kids Get Coding is a fantastic, hands-on resource for anyone looking to get started with coding. The four books cover key areas of the KS1 computing curriculum with simple text. Each title contains practical on- and off-line activities that are easy to follow and fun to try on your own or with friends. Guiding young coders through each title is Data Duck - a computer-programming mastermind here to help with hints and tips! The Kids Get Coding series is written by Heather Lyons and Elizabeth Tweedale of blue{shift} - a company dedicated to teaching children to become active creators of technology.
