In this exciting title, Joe and Dr. Bea blast off on an expedition into space! Join the two scientists as they explore life on board the International Space Station (ISS), experience a spacewalk, study the planets, and discover the beauty - and dangers - of our solar system.
While exploring a cave, Joe and Dr. Bea encounter all sorts of wildlife living in the damp cavern. Can the two scientists find their way out? In this engaging title, readers learn all about stalactites, stalagmites, and how animals survive and adapt to life in the dark.
During a trip to survey a river, Dr. Bea and Joe are suddenly swept into the water! In this exciting title, the pair must use their science knowledge to survive the rushing rapids and dangerous challenges waiting around each bend.
While reading the temperature of a lava flow on an active volcano, Joe and Dr. Bea’s science skills come in handy to help them outsmart the fiery flow of molten rock. In this adventurous title, readers will learn about different kinds of volcanoes, how they form, and about some of the most destructive eruptions in history.
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.
