Last week I dropped in to the London studio of Fun Kids to be interviewed for the Science Weekly podcast. Host Dan asked me about computer code, where it comes from, and how computer languages work. It was a lot of fun taking part in the interview, and I would like to thank host Dan and producer Imogen for having me along. As always with these things, I thought of better answers to some of the questions on the tube home!
The interview was recorded to coincide with the publication of Coder Academy, which is out now and provides an introduction to Scratch programming and simple web design. The book is aimed at children aged 7-10 years old, and includes lots of interactive activities on the page. You can take Scratch further with Scratch Programming in Easy Steps and Cool Scratch Projects in Easy Steps. Follow those links to get free chapters and bonus content.
