    Dd7 was introduced to scratch at a camp and has developed an interest in programming. She wants to build her own website and apps. I told her those require many years of computer programming experience but she wants to start learning. She found a book titled "create with code build your own website" and wanted me to buy it. Before I do, I wanted to reach out and see if anyone here had better recommendations. Thanks for your help.

    I'm also interested. All the titles I've found were painfully elementary or hopefully advanced. My son would love to do computer programming but we need something inbetween.

    Youth Digital online classes worked well for us at that age.

    Thanks funtimes. Dd and I checked it out and she was super excited. I am sticker shocked at the $250 tag. I wish they offered a monthly option so we can see if it is the right fit.
