Using coding to add even more magic to the power of storytelling

This books uses the power of coding to create algorithms that personalise a child's book.  

It includes their name in a constellation of stars as well as a satellite map of where they live interweaved in the story.  

Our students may not all end up as coders in their future work lives.  However, students need to understand the concepts of coding and algorithms and have developed the problem solving and critical thinking skills to connect those concepts with other skills.  

So if we end up being a writer, or an illustrator, or a researcher we can communicate and collaborate with the programmers/coders to create an amazing product like this.
