Martel Maxwell is on a quest to find out about the world of digital technology. It's all around us - but what does it take to create something new? And do you need to be good at coding?

As she discovers, some of the best digital products came from very simple ideas, but they're successful because they solved a problem for someone. She meets an inventor who's created a piece of software that can turn the human voice into the sound of all sorts of monsters and animals, and tries out a device that can turn a phone into a portable, inexpensive, microscope.

Finally, Martel tries building a video game from scratch. With no previous experience or coding skills, she's apprehensive. But as she discovers, it's still possible to be creative in the digital world. What it takes is good ideas - and having fun.
