ERA 2017 Finalist

Primary Computing Resources for Computing Mastery

BETT Awards 2018

What this activity teaches

The concept of how digital systems use the binary number system (zeros and ones) to store and manipulate data.  The children will learn that binary can be 'coded' to represent numbers and letters.

This practical, hands-on, activity sets learning about how computers and computer systems work in an engaging context.

The children encode their names into binary and create a bracelet using coloured beads.

They can then move on to create their own secret codes!
