The Computer Science Activity Book is the perfect companion for curious youngsters and grown-ups — especially those who think they’ll never understand how computers work. As readers work their way through this collection of fun and innovative hands-on exercises, they’ll learn the core programming concepts and computer terminology that form the foundation of a STEM education.

Readers learn about historical figures like Charles Babbage, Ada Lovelace, Grace Hopper, and Alan Turing; how computers store data and run programs; and how the parts of a computer work together (like the hard drive, RAM, and CPU) through activities that teach foundational programming concepts like drawing a garden of flowers using for loops and creating creatures with conditional statements.
