AJ is very much into computer coding, & he has completed a few projects on Scratch.  Scratch is a simple coding program developed for children by researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Media Lab.  Scratch is available free online, so anyone can use it.


If your child is new to computer coding, or has the interest to pick up this skill, here's a good book to start with.



As you can see from the content page, this book 1st introduce what is coding, then Scratch, & lastly Python.  It also covers what's inside the computers.



Every page is full of colours, & explanation given in words & shown in pictures, this book is easily read & understood by kids as young as 9.  Best of all, it can be borrowed from the National Library Board!  :)

Here's a real life story that may inspire you & your child.  You may click the link here to read.

If you are keen to send your child to holiday workshops on computer coding or web design, please see my previous post here.
