ASCII Code: Character to Binary

July  13, 2016 –

“Using an app is like ordering take-out food. Learning to code is like taking a pot and cooking a meal for your family”

– camper at Somali Centre for Family Services (SCFS).

In this picture, campers are introduced to ASCII Code: character to binary or letter to binary. Campers hold up their names in code (the way your name is stored by the computer) “Can I take these binary, algorithm and pixilation sheets home?” We love these kind of learning outcomes.

Thank you Muny Kalif , Bille Abdalla and SCFS summer staff for your kind hospitality! We look forward to seeing you next week to build makey makey arcade games.
