Scratch is an educational programming language that allows children to imagine, create, and share their own games, interactive stories, and music videos. In Super Scratch Adventure!, kids master programming fundamentals by making games inspired by arcade classics like Breakout and Pitfall. As they build and expand on their games, kids learn more than just an interface and buttons-they learn to think creatively and reason logically. Each chapter teaches readers how to program a new game, while referencing pop culture favorites like Harry Potter, Star Wars, and Indiana Jones. As kids work their way through the adventures, they effortlessly absorb programming concepts like flow control, broadcasts, data types, and more-all while having fun, making cool things, and playing games. This book is endorsed by Professor Mitchel Resnick, the creator of Scratch, and has been technically reviewed by Scratch developers.
