It's Sunday—ice cream day! But sometimes the ice cream truck turns down a different street. Can Jerron, A.J., and Cha crack the ice cream man's code? They want him to come their way! 

This story explores the Makers theme of Coding and includes explanatory sidebars and a computer coding-related activity for young makers to try themselves! Coding is the process of writing instructions for a computer in a way—or code—that it understands. A computer reads the code and follows the coder’s instructions.

Tying into the popular Makers Movement, Makers Make It Work is a series of fun easy-to-read stories that focus on problem-solving and hands-on action! This series was specifically developed to support STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) learning. Each book is inspired by a specific topic of the Makers Movement—from robots, to woodworking, to 3D printing and baking.

*Bonus Activity in the Book: Use coding logic to get a friend from one point to another. All you need is paper in three different colors. Arrange the papers on the ground to guide your friends. If they follow the code, then they will reach the red paper at the end.
