VISUAL BASIC EXPRESS FOR KIDS is a beginning programming tutorial consisting of 10 chapters explaining (in simple, easy-to-follow terms) how to build a Visual Basic Express Windows application. Students learn about project design, the Visual Basic Express toolbox, and many elements of the BASIC language. Numerous examples are used to demonstrate every step in the building process. The tutorial also includes several detailed computer projects for students to build and try. These projects include a number guessing game, a card game, an allowance calculator, a drawing program, a state capitals game, Tic-Tac-Toe and even a simple video game. VISUAL BASIC EXPRESS FOR KIDS is presented using a combination of over 450 pages of FULL-COLOR notes and actual Visual Basic examples. This teacher or parent facilitated material should be understandable to kids aged 10 and up. No programming experience is necessary, but familiarity with doing common tasks using a computer operating system (simple editing, file maintenance, understanding directory structures, working on the Internet) is expected. VISUAL BASIC EXPRESS FOR KIDS requires Windows 7 or Windows 8 and Visual Basic 2012 Express. The Visual Basic source code and all needed multimedia files are available for download from the publisher's website (www.KidwareSoftware.com) after book registration.
