STEM Education at Home and Scratch Book Giveaway

stem education books
With informative STEM education geared books from DK, it is easy for us to encourage our children to keep their minds active and practice a variety of age appropriate concepts. Instead of children playing games on the computer, with Scratch they can make their own games and practice math concepts such as variables, coordinates, angles, problem solving, numeracy, as well as improve language, art and creative skills.

This workbook written by Jon Woodcock for children ages 8-12 with little to no coding experience is a straightforward visual guide that uses fun graphics and easy-to-follow instructions to show young learners how to build their own computer projects using Scratch. With Coding Games in Scratch, children can build single and multiplayer platform games, create puzzles and memory games, race through mazes, add animation, and more using Scratch 2.0.

Essential coding concepts are explained using eight build-along game projects that guide young coders step-by-step, using visual samples, easy-to-follow instructions, and fun pixel art. The book teaches important strategies for solving problems, designing projects, and communicating ideas, all while creating games to play with their friends.

This coding workbook for children age 6-9 who are ready to move on from coding beginner projects in Scratch. The highly visual workbook has challenges through fun, hands-on learning experiences with the same easy-to-follow directions and fun pixel art. Children can make their own music, build more intricate computer games, and even use their webcam to be a part of their own projects.

This workbook has four open-ended projects that use art, music, sound effects, and math that children can make and share online with friends. Children can test their coding knowledge with written vocabulary and programming quizzes at the end of each challenge.

Steve Mould's How to be a Scientist book is separated into 6 sections: natural world, human body, chemistry, earth, physics and space. The explanations and fun activities mentioned in this book will help children understand concepts taught at school, and contemplate the things in the environment. The child friendly experiments, stories about scientists and their discoveries and failures told in an entertaining way, real-life scenarios, images and details will encourage children to be curious, creative, and to pay attention to their environment and test ideas.
