Activity: Binary Weaving
Curriculum Links: Recognise different types of data and explore how the same data can be represented in different ways (ACTDIK008).
In this activity, students code their name or a word of their choice onto a piece of string, using the Ascii alphabet. Students are to choose a colour bead to represent “0” or off, and “1” or on. Other students can then decode each message using the binary system.
