Description


Without coding, all the computers in the world would just be useless boxes of plastic and metal. You could feed information into them, but they wouldn't know what to do with it.

This series takes readers (Ages 8-12) on a historical journey, examining how people coped in the past and how they developed ingenious ways to make life safer and less unpleasant. Each book features full-color cartoon-style illustrations and hilarious speech bubbles to heighten interest, making the series attractive even to reluctant readers.

Coding means creating a set of instructions (or algorithms) that tells a computer how to perform a task. Another word for coding is "programming." Learn about how much we rely on coding in our daily lives to control things such as smartphones and laptops, kitchen appliances, weather forecasts, traffic lights, heating systems, elevators, cars, and the greenhouses where our food is grown.
