What I Like
With easy-to-follow directions and fun pixel art, DK Workbooks: Raspberry Pi Projects helps kids understand the basics of computers, programming, and how to create cool projects in Scratch, Python, and Sonic Pi through fun, hands-on learning experiences. All they need is a Raspberry Pi computer, an SD card, an HDMI cable, a USB power supply, and a standard monitor, mouse, and keyboard.
After they learn how to program their Raspberry Pi using Scratch, kids can make their own music, design their own website, and build and play their own computer games and projects with Scratch, Python, and Sonic Pi. They can even test their coding knowledge with written vocabulary and programming quizzes at the end of each project. The credit-card-sized Raspberry Pi is revolutionizing technology and can help boost kids’ computer skills in a new and innovative way.
Supporting STEM education initiatives, computer coding teaches kids how to think creatively, work collaboratively, and reason systematically, and is quickly becoming a necessary and sought-after skill. DK’s computer coding books are full of fun exercises with step-by-step guidance, making them the perfect introductory tools for building vital skills in computer programming.
This 40-page full-color workbook is perfect with clear instructions and plenty of images that make coding just about foolproof. A book is very basic stuff your child needs to know. If your child is into basic robotics get this book. Very worth it for the price.
