Robots & Repeats Reviews

  • Becky

    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!

    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

    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 to take him down for good. With everyone but Hopper's parents siding with Dr. One-Zero that the kids should not be allowed to spend time together, how will they pull off their big plan and save the school, the town, and Hopper's dad?

    For kids who are interested in computers, robotics, and solving puzzles - this series is wonderful. It explains how each program works, then asks readers to think through what program is needed to solve the next problem. In this fourth book of the series, Mr. Bee shows them how to nest one repeat inside another within a program.

    I read an e-book provided by the publisher through NetGalley.

    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.

  • Kristy

    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.

    The Coders are back in action! (Although at some point I'll have to re-read all of them together...I 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 it...a great lesson for kids to learn! As always, I was just getting into it when it came to an abrupt cliff hanging endi

    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 computer is not available. Not to mention if your not quite into the coding part yet the storyline is still fun and action packed with lots of cliff hangers. This is just a awesome fun series and I have enjoyed reviewing, talking and suggesting these books to many of readers now for some time, and I hope I can continue.

    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

    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 evil

    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 evil plots of One Zero. There aren’t a lot of answers in this volume, the plot just continues to thicken! There’s a group of students at our school who just love the fun and the brain stimulation this series provides. They can’t wait for this one, and I don’t think they’ll be disappointed (though they’ll definitely finish and be eager for the next one).

    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!

    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
