Ben Garside, Raspberry Pi Foundation
This session will involve looking at how data is represented in computer systems. In the session we will look at how to convert between denary and binary values before moving onto hexadecimals. Once we have covered the basics we will explore how these activities can be taught to students to stretch and challenge them by attempting the Escape Room challenge using our new skills.
Relevant Key Stages: KS3, KS4
