After receiving an electric shock, the Code Academy kids’ robot classmate, Ro-Bud, has forgotten all of her programming. Professor Chip and the class must learn how programming and operating systems work in order to get their trusty friend back in working order. With easy-to-understand examples and simple terms, readers will learn how computers operate as well as how they use hardware and software to do work.
The kids at Code Academy are memorizing their lines for a school play with the help of Ro-bud, their computer classmate. But when Ro-bud can't remember her lines, everyone panics! Professor Chip believes it's a memory storage problem. By relating human memory to machine memory, readers are introduced to the concepts of computer memory and storage systems in an easy-to-understand way.
The Code Academy class puts their robot classmate, Ro-Bud, to work tidying up the classroom. But their instructions to Ro-Bud don't get the job done. They must figure out the problem by making flow diagrams that use logic to help Ro-bud make decisions about what to do. A simple activity helps readers see how their own daily routines involve making decisions using logic.
When their robot classmate, Ro-Bud, gets a computer virus, the Code Academy gang is determined to help her. Along the way, they learn what a virus is, and how "hackers" break into computers to steal information or cause damage. This easy-to-follow book simplifies computer concepts to help readers learn why it's important to keep passwords secret to protect computers.
Join the Code Academy kids as they learn how to write computer code that tells Ro-bud, their robot classmate, how to feed Turing, the class guinea pig. The easy-to-understand example shows readers that code is a set of instructions that follow a simple pattern. When Turing gets a tummy bug, the kids learn how to figure out what went wrong and how to “debug” their code.
Professor Chip helps the class at Code Academy understand that computers communicate in a language that kids can learn. Simple sentences and easy-to-understand examples make learning binary code understandable and fun.
