Engaging illustrations and an empowering story combine to introduce young readers to the world of coding, computers and problem-solving.
Curious Sam has lots of questions. What is an algorithm? Could a robot be instructed to walk a dog? What is artificial intelligence? A day spent with Auntie Jo turns into a fascinating lesson in coding for Sam! They discover that the world is full of clever computers, find out about the language they speak and the brilliant coders who have helped us to understand it. Maybe Sam can try out some awesome coding projects and become a coder too?
With pages encouraging kids to try out coding for themselves and opening their minds to the fun things that can be created using computer code, this brilliant picture book written by engineer and TV presenter Dr Shini Somara unlocks a love of coding and computing and celebrates women in STEM.
