CS Fundamentals: Binary Switch
« on: May 29, 2013, 01:51:10 PM »
One of the fundamental computer science concepts is that everything we do on a computer is really just turning binary digits on and off. Even though this sounds simple, it can be a concept that is hard to wrap one's head around. This activity brings the binary concept to reality by creating a binary switch with the MaKey MaKey kit to turn a Scratch animation on or off.

The step-by-step instructions below were created with a #teachtheweb template from Mozilla Thimble.

Kim,

All your submissions were awesome. This one really makes use of MM's kinesthetic educational potential. My inner nerd is heart-warmed that it involves binary :-)

Thanks for sharing this and congrats on making the runner-up list!

MaKe on!
