STEM-Friendly Adventure Tale Integrating Foundational Coding Concepts

Coding Capers: Luci and the Missing Robot is an empowering picture book from the National Center for Youth Issues that inspires children to dream big and harness the power of computer science in their own lives. Students are invited to join the protagonist, Luci, and her friends as they go on an adventure to find a missing robot. In the process, they learn the foundational concepts of coding, the increasing capabilities of technology, and the power of persistence. The book provides readers with an introduction to a range of important 21st-century skills, including pattern recognition, problem solving, and collaboration.

Luci demonstrates how both teamwork and grit are keys to overcoming hurdles in life. Readers will learn not only from Luci’s story but also from the extension activities at the conclusion of the book, as well as from hands-on activities and other engaging resources. Teachers who want to dive deeper into the book can check out the Coding Capers Resource Bundle and explore the lessons taught from the story. The resource bundle includes “Code Your Initials Worksheet,” “Find Luci Worksheet,” “Drawing with Algorithms Partner Activity,” “Everyday Algorithms,” “A Better World with Technology Worksheet,” “I Can Do This Worksheet,” and “Posters” inspired by the book.
