Communicating data

This session will provide students with an introduction to how text is represented in binary and will enable them to explore the importance and drawbacks of compressing data. They will look into lossless and lossy data compression techniques as different approaches to compression.

These resources are set in...

Sensors and logic

In this session students will create a logic circuit to represent a Mars rover MOT. They will identify the necessary logic gates and consider numerous inputs, which will be combined and traversed in person. They will make the link between truth tables and undertake testing and some simplification to reduce the...
