Maths Week 2017 - coding workshop

posted Oct 18, 2017, 12:52 PM by Owen Breslin
Aa part of Maths Week 2017, Offaly County Library invited Mr Breslins 5th class to the library in Tullamore for a coding workshop.

Laura from talked us through reading and writing simple codes using simple keys. We then learned about ASCII code and translated our names into ASCII codes using ones and zeros. Finally the children got to make a keyring using white beads for zeros and black beads for ones. 
We wish to thank the library for their kind invitation to what was an enjoyable and informative event.
