    In this forth volume, Robots & Repeats, Dr. One-Zero has added a new class to Stately Academy’s curriculum. But in “Advanced Chemistry,” they only teach one lesson: how to make Green Pop! While their classmates are manufacturing this dangerous soda, the Coders uncover a clue that may lead them to Hopper’s missing dad.

    Such a good series, and the way coding is explained is accessible and enjoyable. I want to give this series to every kid who comes to our computer programs.Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for the e-ARC in exchange for a review.

    This series continues to be both cute and informative. I would definitely recommend this to young people learning coding and honestly, it was pretty helpful for me, an almost 30 year old. And it didn't make me feel stupid, which is always a plus.

    Dr, One-Zero has gained control of the school and made a terrible change. He has cut all existing class periods in half and used the extra time in the day to require all students to take a chemistry course. The problem is that he has them doing the same experiment over and over - creating Green Pop! With Principal Dean at the hospital under observation, the kids decide it is time to use Mr. Bee's most powerful tool - the Turtle of Light to find a location marked on One-Zero's secret map and try [...]

    The coding content in this book is mostly review, with a large section at the end of how to read binary numbers in 1s and 0s, and the introduction of ASCII. I love that the authors decided to make this a later lesson as opposed to the early binary introduction in the first book. This way, children already have practice thinking about binary as "open/close" or "on/off" and reading simple binary numbers (the chapter headings are always a basic binary code) before introducing 1s and 0s. It means th [...]

    The evil One Zero has taken over the school as Principal One Zero! The Secret Coders have to figure out what he’s doing at school, use their growing coding skills to outwit him, and continue to look for Hooper’s dad.Each new graphic novel in this series continues to build on the coding skills taught in the last one. This one gets into inset repeats and introduces ASCII. Of course, many readers are in it for the ongoing mystery of where Hooper’s dad is and how the Secret Coders can foil the [...]

    Hopper, Eni and Josh are back and still fighting Principal One-Zero. This time One-Zero is determined to split the team up, but the team has other plans to bad they didn't factor in robot ducks with teeth.I find these some of the cutest coding books for kids that work on the fundamentals of coding and usually one or two things at a time. This book teaches about nesting and goes back and reinforces the binary code as well. It teaches code in a fun manner and one that can be repeated on paper if a [...]

    Having thwarted Professor One-Zero's plans in the previous book, the coding trio are shocked to discover that Professor One-Zero has now taken over the school, and has now introduced a chemistry class to manufacture the chemicals that the Professor will use to take over the world.The trio are forced to use the last resort left to them: a letter that guides them to the ultimate turtle that could help them defeat the Professor. But before they can do that, they need to learn the use of repeats tha [...]

    The Coders are back in action! (Although at some point I'll have to re-read all of them togetherI forgot all about what happened to Mr. Dean) But the plot advanced well here and we might be getting closer to finding Hopper's dad! Of course much time is devoted to teaching code and binary, and I loved that this time around they got a code wrong and had to go back and fix ita great lesson for kids to learn! As always, I was just getting into it when it came to an abrupt cliff hanging ending and I' [...]

    I previously reviewed the first book in the Secret Coders series and found it to be fun, educational, and quite funny. This one was along a similar vein - fun, educational, funny. However I can't give this book many more stars than this - gentle, fun, good characters, but not super engaging or interesting for me. I think I will carry on with the series for now, but I think these books might be better off with kids or beginners to coding who are interested in learning more with a little humour al [...]

    This is such a unique series. It brings mystery and adventure to learning how to code. The books build upon each other as they teach coding and the plot continues as well. Still on the search for her missing Dad, Hopper and the guys learn to put repeats within repeats into their coding along with learning how binary code and ASCII work. There are times in the story where it will ask you to write some code or guess what a given code will make. It would be great when this series is finished to pub [...]

    Thanks to Net Galley for an ARC of this graphic novel in return for an honest review.The coders are back in action as they try to find clues to trace Hooper's father, coding along the way. The explanations on coding were easy to understand, probably geared to mid to upper elementary students. Sometimes I felt that the plot was a bit neglected and too much emphasis was put on the coding instead.However, for kids who are new to coding and who enjoy graphic novels, this series is a treasure!

    I wonder how much children learn or understand about coding in these books. I have trouble going from the coding puzzles back to the story, and so am a big vague on the plot. These are formatted well, with a good balance between text and pictures. This is something that a lot of graphic novels have trouble with.

    My six year old and I read this in an evening. He loved this next edition and can't wait until March! He was thrilled to find that he had answered the question from the end of the third edition correctly. I love how these books teach the fundamentals of coding along with an ongoing story that is engaging for both my son and me.

    Gene Luen Yang. Need I say more? This is a great series that includes logic, along with an entertaining storyline, dotted with humor. The integration is pretty seamless. If this is the first Gene Luen Yang book you have read, please be sure it is not the last. Enjoyable for young readers, as well as those who are older.

    Best selling author/graphic novelist Gene Luen Yang has teamed up with Mike Holmes to create a graphic novel that teaches kids how to code using Logo and binary as the programming languages. The coding happens within a story line and also gives students the opportunity to practice as they go along.This is a sequel - only get it if you have #1-3. #1 is a must have.Grades 3-5

    Thank you Net Galley for the copy in exchange for a fair review.More problem solving awaits the Coders. As the series progresses they gain new skills that help them on their adventure. I enjoy these books even though I know nothing about coding. It is a great way of introducing coding to kids in a very relatable manner.

    It feels like this volume, perhaps because of the complexity of the coding, focuses less on story and more on the graphic explanations. I’m not complaining though, even though my brain hurts, this is kind fun.

    That one was such a quick read! I liked the introduction of the nested repeats and the binary code. I think this is a great series for children (and maybe even adults 😉) to learn more about coding. Now I have to wait for the next one in the series :(

    This was actually one of my favorites of the series because it had a lot of what I loved about the first book. The challenge was straightforward and I just love the friendship these three kids have. Another great addition to the series!

    I do love me some educational, but fun comics! Robots and Repeats builds on both coding knowledge and the plot of the previous books, pitting the kids against the evil Doctor, and introducing some parental drama as well!

    I like how Yang engages the reader to solve the code on their own before solving it - or in this case, the coders messed up and figured out how to fix it or tweak it so it became a more efficient code. The story itself was pretty good too.

    I've read all in the series so far, but I didn't care for this one as much. It wasn't as exciting as the last one -- there wasn't very much action. Still, I'll probably read the next one when it comes out.

    The code gets ever more complex! And the principal has been replaced someone even worse?!? Say it ain't so, Secret Coders!

    Em loves this series. Next book doesn't come out for a month, so we get to take a break and read something else for a change. :)

    Yeah, I'm going to stop reading this series now. Outside of the coding puzzles, the writing is just sloppy and stupid.
