Ada Lovelace: Binary Art

Sessions available from September 2019

Computing, History, Art

Binary is used by most modern technology for encoding data and instructions.
Students will explore binary, encoding and Jacquard punch machines; discovering how these concepts connect and link to Ada Lovelace, ‘The First Computer Programmer’.  They will use their learning to create, encrypt and decode binary information to create their own piece of art work

Students will leave having gained knowledge in how to represent data using binary, applied simple error correcting to their own encoded data and how the history of computers is linked to Ada Lovelace and Jacquard Looms.
