Summer SAVY 2016 (Session 4AM/PM, Day 1) – The Science of Complexity

Posted by on Monday, July 11, 2016 in Grade 1, Grade 2, SAVY.

Today in the science complexity we learned that complex systems all have simple parts that follow simple rules to create complex patterns. We zoomed in on how computers use 1’s and 0’s to communicate information like pictures, words, videos. The students translated from binary to base-10 number and to letter to create messages in binary. Tomorrow, we will create even more complex patterns with computers by using scratch to create programs. Then, we will begin investigating our first ecological system by asking, “what happens to our garbage?”
