We are moving more into computer science concepts in Technology class. Older and Middle Kids learned about binary numbers—using powers of 2 (instead of powers of 10) to represent numbers. All that learning about place value in math comes in handy! They had to convert binary numbers into letters to decode a saying.
It’s so exciting to see them get it, and understand why 101 is actually the number 5. Ones and zeros are definitely the foundation of computer science!
