Computer programming might seem hopelessly complicated, but it's actually a lot like walking--you just have to take it one step at a time! In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby explain how programming is just like giving instructions. Discover how people write commands in computer languages called code, and how code is broken down into step-by-step procedures called algorithms. Then, see how patience, attention to detail, and the ability to foresee different circumstances and outcomes can turn a lines of text into useful programs and activities!-meta_description=In this educational animated movie about technology, learn about algorithms, loops, variables, and conditionals, as well as how programmers use them to code.
