Those ones and zeros might not look like anything to you, but in binary code, the numbers are actually saying “Hello!” This is BINARY CODE
Binary code works by representing content (letters, symbols, colors) in a form that computers can understand.
This is done by breaking the content down into a numeric system of two digits “0” and “1”.
To accomplish this, computers use electrical impulses switching OFF and ON to represent these two-digit numbers.
Learning to write and understand Binary code is the first step in understanding how computers work. In this kit, girls will learn how to write and understand binary code and then create their binary bling representing something of meaning to them.
Understanding how to write binary code is the first step in digital literacy and how computing devices understand information.
