Written by Helena Ingram during her senior year of high school last year. This book was inspired by her time volunteering at Mount Auburn Elementary School. It was there that she realized that she wanted to find a way to help show kids how they can bring coding into their everyday lives, and what they’re passionate about. Whether it’s a sport a kid loves or a problem they see that needs to be fixed in their local community, coding can help with that and that’s what she really wanted to show through this book.
About the Book
Lanie Learns to Code is a book about a girl named Lanie and her best friend Charlie, who are excited about learning the technology of coding. While taking coding classes at their local elementary school, Lanie thinks of a wonderful idea to use coding to help find her lost puppy, Daisy. With the help of her school’s coding teacher, Ms. Peterson, and the support of her best friend Charlie, she builds a startup to not only help find her puppy Daisy, but help other people find their lost pets too.
