Biography for children – 200th birthday of ‘founder of Computer Science’ George Boole
Download our free biography of George Boole for primary aged pupils. This works really well with our Binary Beads unit in iData which is available free as part of our contribution to this year’s Hour of Code.
The children encode their first names using binary and then make bracelets using coloured beads, where one colour represents zero and another represents one.
This resource will also soon form part of a computing and history unit in our forthcoming cross-curricular computing pack – iCompute Across The Curriculum. Download the free lesson and associated materials from our Hour of Code page.
