SMITH COMPUTER LANGUAGE
Smith Elementary Pre-K did an unplugged computer science activity called, "Binary Bracelets."

Jennifer Nantz taught a Pre-K friendly lesson on the importance of binary in the world of computers and showed the students images of the inside of a computer, as well as introduced them to vocabulary, such as binary, bit, byte, nibble, encode and decode.

They also used a binary decoder key to encode letters into binary and decode binary back to letters.

"We discussed how a computer takes information such as letters in the alphabet and encodes them into 'computer language' or binary," Nantz said. "Once students got the hang of things, they selected two different color beads to encode the first letter of their names into binary."

The beads were added to elastic string for "storing" the information, as well as to take home for show and tell.
